Napolitano 'one of worst presidents' says M5S - update 2

Anti-establishment group says won't miss 89-year-old

(ANSA) - Rome, January 14 - Giorgio Napolitano was "one of the worst presidents" in the history of the Italian Republic, the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) said in a statement by its Lower House and Senate whips, Andrea Cecconi and Alberto Airola, after the 89-year-old resigned as head of State on Wednesday. The M5S frequently accused Napolitano of not properly conducting his role as an independent arbiter of Italian politics, saying he favoured the established parties, and it failed in a bid to have him impeached. "We won't miss him," said the statement by Cecconi and Airola.
    They also called on Napolitano to forego his right as an ex-president to become a Life Senator.
