Italy appeared to be inching toward another round of polls on Monday after centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani issued an ultimatum to 5-Star Movement leader Beppe Grillo to support a temporary government or “we’ll all go home”.

Bersani had ruled out another technocrat government, led by Monti. Last week’s vote left no one with a working majority in parliament, making an alliance with a rival the only solution to forming a government.

“Now (Grillo) must say what he wants, otherwise we all go home including him,” Bersani said.
