Grillo repeats won't join forces or stand for premier

(ANSA) - Rome, January 11 - Comedian-turned-politician Beppe Grillo reiterated Friday he would not join forces with anyone after next month's general election and would not bid for the premiership.

"We won't be part of this rotten system," said the 61-year-old leader of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) at a rally outside the interior ministry in Rome.

Grillo has slipped from second to fourth in the election race amid claims of an autocratic leadership style.
