Italy's House Speaker blasts brawling 5-Star MPs
Deplores 'ill-advised decision' to try to impeach the president30 January, 18:17
"MPs preventing another MP from being interviewed, thereby interfering with the press' right and duty to inform the public, is intolerable and evokes troubling memories," Boldrini said in a statement. The House Speaker went on to express "heartfelt solidarity" with President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano after the M5S, led by gadfly comic Beppe Grillo, announced it had made a formal petition for his impeachment.
The president "is a democratic guarantee. I deplore this ill-advised decision," Boldrini said.
