Italy party seeks to end dead­lock:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

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)
