SPD leader slammed 'victory of two clowns' in Italian elections

Napolitano meeting with Germany's Steinbrueck called off

Munich, February 27 - A meeting between Italian President Giorgio Napolitano and German centre-left SPD chancellor candidate Peer Steinbrueck in Berlin Wednesday evening has been called off, official sources said, without giving a reason. Social Democrat Steinbrueck on Tuesday said he was "horrified by the victory of two clowns" in Italy's elections, referring to centre-right leader Silvio Berlusconi and anti-establishment comedian Beppe Grillo. Napolitano kicked off his three-day State visit by meeting German opinion leaders in Munich, voicing his concern for "growing populism" and anti-EU sentiment in Europe. photo: Napolitano with German President Joachim Glauck
