Monti responds to 'Grillo risk' question

Responding to journalists' questions about what risk Grillo's populist and anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) posed should it garner substantial voter support in parliamentary elections on Sunday and Monday, Monti said, "We had the risk of (becoming like) Greece in November 2011 and we managed to thwart it with all the understanding and sacrifice of the Italian people. "It would be terrible to fall back into it. I hope not," said Monti.
