Rome mayor 'first step' towards felling govt - Grillo (2)

'We'll start in Rome' says M5S leader

(ANSA) - Rome, February 8 - Winning the Rome mayoral race in June will be the "first step" towards bringing down Matteo Renzi's government, anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Beppe Grillo said Monday. "We'll start in Rome, to make it a world city again after the disasters of Rutelli, Veltroni, Alemanno and Marino," he said. "It will only be the first step, towards also definitively pulling down the government of this country," Grillo said on his blog. "The truth is that no one had veer before drawn up a programme of solutions for the capital together with citizens, never before had anyone put the interests of the Romans before those of parties, as we M5S are doing. This challenge will be decisive for the future of Rome and the whole country". The M5S are currently topping polls for the mid-June mayoral race, though they have yet to name a candidate.
