Grillo MPs storm out of House over election law reform (see previous) (ANSA) - Rome, December 5 - MPs from the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) left the House in protest Thursday after losing a motion to hold a snap meeting of party whips to set a date to reform Italy's election law. The M5S, led by comedian Beppe Grillo, says the government is now illegitimate following a ruling by the Constitutional Court Wednesday that the nation's election law was unconstitutional. The ruling against the law, often referred to as the 'porcellum' or 'pig-sty' law, ups pressure on parliament to change the law quickly.
