Criminal lawyer Joe Giglio has submitted his nomination to enter the election for the Nationalist Party’s Executive Committee.
Giglio, who will be contesting the next general election on the PN’s ticket, said he submitted his name after speaking with PN leader Bernard Grech.
“I plan on continuing my political journey and am determined to help the Nationalist Party however I can so that together, we can bring about a new form of politics in our country,” Giglio said during his announcement.
“I urge all PN councillors to participate in this process.”
Giglio, a popular criminal lawyer, is relatively new to politics, though his name has often been floated in PN circles as a potential future leader, alongside others like MEP Roberta Metsola.
He is often involved in high-profile criminal cases; just recently, Giglio appeared parte civile for Carmel Pace, the widower of Miriam Pace, the Maltese mother who lost her life after a neighbouring building collapsed.
