Rome, June 11 - Beppe Grillo, leader of the 5-Star
Movement, dodged responsibility Tuesday for major losses in
local elections, hinting that voters will be sorry for their
choices.
"The outcome of the election is dramatic for Italy," he
said in a post on his blog, a major soapbox for him and the
movement he spawned on-line in 2009.
"Italians, the majority of Italians, they are beginning to
lose hope. And this is very sad".
In local elections on Sunday and Monday, the centre-left
Democratic Party swept the major cities and towns that were up
for grabs, while the M5S was largely absent from the run-offs
after suffering a big fall in support in the first round of
voting two weeks earlier.
But Grillo refused to see that as a judgement of his
political movement's efforts since it captured around a quarter
of the vote in February's general election.
He said that other parties have done their best to crush
every effort M5S members make to improve their country.
"You ask what the M5S has done in recent months," Grillo
said in his blog post, listing bills he said his party has tried
to present on matters ranging from abolishing grants to
newspapers and political parties to election law changes.
"I'm ignored, rejected," he added before seemingly loosing
patience.
"The M5S is legalistic, peaceful...What were you expecting?
(That) we would set fire to parliament?"
