M5S premier candidate 'will be chosen by Web,' Grillo says

Comedian lashes out at speculation over Di Maio

(ANSA) - Rome, September 11 - The opposition anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) party "will choose the candidate for premier on the Web as we always have done," the party's founder, comedian Beppe Grillo, told reporters Friday.
    "We will present a government team with a programme decided by members," he said while leaving the Rome hotel Forum where he commented on newspaper headlines about possible candidates for prime minister the party might support including the M5S lawmaker Luigi Di Maio.
    "Invent yourself something else," he snorted, "try and find more objective information because otherwise the country suffers ... all you do is look for big headlines".
