Italy: Will Five Star Movement make a difference?

The M5S has led in recent opinion polls and, although having shifted policies from those of its founder Beppe Grillo, the party rejects deals and coalitions with mainstream parties.


    Italy is holding parliamentary elections on Sunday and it's feared there may be no clear outcome.

    Both the left and the right are expected to fall behind the anti-establishment 5 Star Movement, known as M5S.

    The party, which heavily criticises other parties from the left and right, has led in all recent opinion polls. The party's main message is that Italy needs totally new politics.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Italy.
