Grillo MPs to make assessments 'reform by reform'

Genoa, February 26 - Genoa comic and leader of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) said on Tuesday his party would assess legislative proposals on their individual merits and in accordance with its campaign manifesto after taking around 25% of the vote in recent general elections. "We are not out to fight the world," the gadfly comedian told journalists outside his home in the Ligurian capital. "We will decide reform by reform, law by law. If there are proposals that come under our manifesto we will consider them". M5S became the single largest party in Italy in Sunday and Monday polls and helped prevent Pier Luigi Bersani's centre-left coalition - seen as the forerunner in pre-election polls - from securing a working majority in the parliament. Grillo and ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, leader of a centre-right alliance, between them polled over half the popular vote, sparking panic on the money markets and in the European political establishment.
