Grillo says M5S may drive for referendum on EU membership


Modena, May 23 - Beppe Grillo said his
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) will drive for Italy to
have a referendum next year on whether Italy should continue to
have the euro as its currency and stay in the European Union.
"The euro should be rethought," said
comedian-turned-politician Grillo, whose Internet-based movement
captured around a quarter of the vote in February's general
"We are considering doing a year of campaigning to then
call a referendum to say yes or no to the euro and to say yes or
no to Europe".
In Italy it is possible to call for a referendum by
collecting 500,000 signatures on a petition.
Grillo said Italy should follow the lead of Britain, after
Prime Minister David Cameron promised to hold a referendum on EU
membership by 2017.
"The British teach us democracy on the euro (which Britain
does not have as its currency) and Europe," said Grillo. "No
party can claim the right to decide for 60 million people".
