In a Saturday morning interview on NET FM, Leader of the Opposition, Adrian Delia has discussed the current situation in Malta. Referring to Labour Party leader contenders, Robert Abela and Chris Fearne, Delia commented that these have been transformed overnight, “Instead of showing confidence in the Prime Minister and the Commissioner, we now have to remove both”. With regard to the Prime Minister’s resignation, he reiterated that Joseph Muscat has resigned not in the country’s best interest but because there was huge pressure on him to do so.
Delia said that Malta is “damaged almost beyond repair”. Moreover, he pointed out that the group involved in corruption and murder has not only hijacked the party, or the government, but the whole country. He agreed with the idea of changing the Constitution, because, according to him, “those who wrote the constitution never imagined that the government might be compromised in this way”.
Delia also talked about a 15-point document, which was approved on Friday by the General Council of the Party to change the Constitution, and ultimately politics in Malta. Delia said that these changes were a bid to create a new structure for the political landscape, the constitution and the media itself. He said that this document would serve as a blueprint for a new country, a country of honest politics and integrity, and, he continued that it would ensure that “what has happened, will never happen again.”
Delia also criticized the current system wherein persons of trust are being endowed with €80,000 contracts all paid from our taxes, “while our children after graduating cannot find work”. Delia also mentioned the Vitals case, which he said has cost the taxpayer €2 billion for a company that could not execute what was in the same contract.
