Rome, February 15 - Anti-establishment 5-Star
Movement (M5S) leader Luigi Di Maio on Thursday proposed the
first move he thinks parties can "converge" on after the March 4
general election, halving parliamentary salaries.
"Today I propose the first of a series of issues for a
government convergence," he said.
"All parties should now sign this act in which they vow to to
vote the bill halving the salaries of MPs and introducing
precise billing of reimbursements," he said.
Writing on the M5S blog, Di Maio said "we have shown that an
MP can live a more than dignified life while halving his
stipend."
He said: "the parties gobble up double salaries and pocket
all the reimbursements (for party spending) without providing
accounts of anything to anyone".
The M5S styles itself as being unlike the traditional
parties, which it says are wedded to perks and corruption.
However it has recently suffered a scandal in which eight
members were found not to have paid back money which they should
have according to the party statutes.
