(AGI) - Barletta, May 14 - At an electioneering rally in Barletta on Tuesday, 5-Star Movement leader Beppe Grillo criticised the Italian President and the Democratic Party. With Napolitano's presidency extended a further seven years in April, Grillo said "a 14-year mandate is unheard of even in South America." As for the Democratic Party and its resigned leader Pier Luigi Bersani's attempts at a coalition government with the M5S movement, Grillo said "there never was scope for an agreement: we were never even asked. Those people are just too stuck up." .
