Italy party seeks to end deadlock:
Anti-establishment leader Luigi Di Maio on Tuesday called on Italy’s other political parties to listen to what he called a “signal” from voters and help him break the country’s post-election political deadlock.
Di Maio’s Five Star Movement (M5S) won the largest share of the vote for any single political party from the March 4 general election with nearly 33 percent. He immediately claimed victory in the aftermath despite a hung parliament.
“Italy sent a strong signal on March 4 ... and that gave 32.5 percent to the M5S,” the 31-year-old told a press conference on Tuesday. (AFP)
