A former leader of the Nationalist Party has reacted publicly following a new interview with the current leader Bernard Grech.
“If the party is doing better or worse is up to the people to decide,” Adrian Delia said today. “But to celebrate that you weren’t betrayed isn’t very just, I would think.”
Delia’s reaction comes after a Lovin Malta interview with Grech, where he was asked about the state of infighting within the PN today, compared to previous years.
“I think the PN is much better in this aspect than it was two and a half years ago. You know what the PN was passing through,” Grech said, referring to the infighting and resignations that occurred under Delia’s tenure.
“Is anyone going to the President to change their leader?” Grech said.
In July, 2020, PN MPs Chris Said and Claudette Buttigieg were filmed going to the President’s Palace in Attard to ask to replace Adrian Delia as Opposition Leader and replace him with Therese Comodini Cachia
Although they were unsuccessful in their attempts, a leadership election was called, which saw Grech take over from Delia.
Delia took aim at the statement, saying: “More than anything, this is disrespectful to the party’s councillors and their vote.”
“Though I really was betrayed, as Grech likes to remind us… I remained loyal to the party.”
