Beppe Grillo rejects Speakers, current parliament

Rome, March 21 - Beppe Grillo, the leader of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), said Thursday his party would not support the current parliament and would only support proposals that suit its platform. "The M5S will not agree to any confidence in political or pseudo-technocrat governments with the support of familiar fig leaves," said Grillo on his blog. "The M5S instead will vote for every bill that fits with our platform". Grillo says that members of his party were deceived into voting for center-left 'fig leaf' candidates Pietro Grasso and Laura Boldrini, who recently were elected Senate and House speakers respectively after several M5S members broke the party line in order to block center-right candidates. The blog post came shortly after meeting with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano, who is discussing forming a government with the leaders of the parties in parliament.
