Rome, July 24 - Beppe Grillo, leader of the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), should stop insulting
public institutions and show more respect, House Speaker Laura
Boldrini said Wednesday.
''With his aggressive and destructive language, Grillo
continues to throw insults at the institutions,'' said Boldrini.
''His constant verbal attacks do not contribute, but only
serve to discredit them".
The M5S, which around a quarter of the vote in February's
general election, said it wants to destroy the current political
party system, which it claims has brought corruption and
economic decline.
Comedian-turned-politician Grillo frequently communicates
his political thoughts via an often angry blog where no holds
are barred.
Last month, for example, he said the current Italian
parliament was a useless "empty can of tuna" because lawmakers
did little more that rubber stamp bills and decrees presented by
Premier Enrico Letta's left-right government. .
He also said the current parliament was illegitimate
because it was elected with a much-criticised election law that
he said is unconstitutional.
This week, meanwhile, he accused Letta of wanting to impose
a "government dictatorship".
With his attacks on government, Grillo is contradicting the
will of millions of Italians who voted for government
representatives - including the 160-plus senators and House
members of the M5S, added Boldrini in a statement.
