Renowned tenor Joseph Calleja has come out swinging against Prime Minister Joseph Muscat after today’s parliamentary group meeting.
“Leaderless, rudderless and utterly untenable,” Calleja said, tweeting the news that Muscat will stay on as Prime Minister until the start of January and that Chris Cardona has been reinstated as Economy Minister and PL deputy leader.
Malta has been facing a political crisis for the past weeks as the investigation into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia implicated people very close to the Office of the Prime Minister.

The tenor has been quite active on Twitter in recent days, sharing several articles and posts related to Malta’s political crisis, including a statement by Daphne Caruana Galizia’s family that the Prime Minister must resign immediately.
Former Malta football Capitan Andre Schembri yesterday asked urged him to comment about the situation further, asking whether he still thinks it is all “hullabaloo”.
This was a reference to comments made by Calleja in April 2018 to a group of Maltese protestors in London, who had called him out for singing at an event organised by Henley & Partners.
