No government yet, but let's start cutting costs

Let's get to work right now, says M5s's Crimi

Rome, March 13 - Anti-establishment comic Beppe Grillo's 5-Star Movement (M5S) prospective Senate caucus leader Vito Crimi on Wednesday called on all parties to stop wasting time and get to work cutting government costs, even though political consultations on what Italy's next government will look like are still ongoing. ''This is my challenge. Since you all say you want only to act in the interests of the people let's not waste a month, which would also be a waste of a month's salary for 1,000 MPs'', Crimi wrote on his Facebook page. ''Let's get to work right away to cut the costs of politics and start helping the neediest. This would be the best, if not the only, sign that you have actually heard what the Italian people shouted at you from the voting booths''. Although a coalition led by the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) achieved a majority in the House after narrowly beating a centre-right alliance led by ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party, no party or coalition got a majority in the Senate, producing a hung parliament. The anti-establishment, anti-euro and anti-austerity M5S was the single most-voted party in the House and holds the balance of power in the Senate.
