Rome, August 5 - Beppe Grillo on Monday dismissed
reports his anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) may be
willing to form a government with the centre-left Democratic
Party (PD) if Premier Enrico Letta's executive falls.
Letta's fragile grand coalition is under huge strain after
the supreme court last week upheld a tax-fraud conviction
against ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi.
This has led to speculation that the PD might seek an
alliance with the M5S if its coalition with Berlusconi's People
of Freedom (PdL) party breaks down.
But comedian-turned-politician Grillo stressed there is no
change in his stance that he will not govern with any of the
established parties, which he says are responsible for a
dysfunctional political system that has produced debt,
corruption and economic decline.
"The PdL and the PD are the same," Grillo said via his
Twitter account, @beppe_grillo.
"There is no chance of me allying with one or the other, or
voting confidence (in governments led by them)".
The PD and the PdL, traditional foes, formed an alliance to
make Letta's government possible in April following two months
of deadlock after February's inconclusive general election.
Before cutting a deal with the PdL, the PD tried
unsuccessfully to get the M5S, which won around a quarter of the
vote in February, to form an alliance.
