Grillo's M5S opposed to second Napolitano term

(see related stories) Rome, April 20 - Members of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement said Saturday that they were opposed to Italian President Giorgio Napolitano serving a second term as head of state. "A second Napolitano term is excellent for a country that cannot decide or does not want to decide," said Roberta Lombardi, the House whip for M5S, the third biggest group in parliament after February's inconclusive general election. The movement led by comedian-turned-politician Beppe Grillo said before Napolitano agreed to stand again ahead of the sixth presidential ballot that it would keep voting for its candidate, Constitutional lawyer and former Communist party MP Stefano Rodota'. "I thought Napolitano was gone. Seven years have been enough," said M5S Senator Mario Giarrusso. "We don't need Napolitano, we need a great president".
