Rome, June 21 - A Senator in the troubled 5-Star
Movement (M5S) said she was leaving the anti-establishment party
Friday in solidarity with another Senate member who was ejected
this week.
"After much painful reflection, I announce my exit from the
5-Star Movement," said Paola De Pin, voicing her "full
solidarity with Adele Gambaro" and disapproval of her "pillory
before the media".
On Wednesday the party rank and file voted online to eject
Gambaro for criticizing M5S founder and leader Beppe Grillo,
calling him "a problem for the movement" after the bloc's poor
showing at local elections across Italy.
De Pin said she reserved her right to resign from the
Senate in the future.
Her defection is the first since Gambaro was expelled, to
the opposition of a significant number of M5S Senators and MPs.
Many believe that a party schism is imminent.
