PD approves Bersani's eight-point platform

Rome, March 6 - The center-left Democratic Party (PD) leadership on Wednesday voted with one abstention to approve the eight-point platform by party chief Pier Luigi Bersani. The platform is made up of eight "essential" points that are broadly in line with the manifesto of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) of ex-comedian Beppe Grillo, who rode a huge protest vote to become the biggest party in the House and hold the balance of power in the Senate. The shocking result came amid widespread public disenchantment with a political class that has been hit by a series of corruption scandals and is seen by some as having done more to protect its privileges than to resolve Italy's economic ailments.
