Following last night’s news that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat would be getting his very own sticker album, the Labour Party have now distanced themselves entirely from the controversial product.
“Neither the Prime Minister nor the Labour Party have ever given permission to this product,” the statement reads. Moreover, the statement reasserts that there is absolutely no relationship between the sticker album and the party (or the office of the Prime Minister).
Produced by Album & Co, the sticker album is set to be published on Freedom Day, 31st March
Entitled ‘Joseph Muscat – A Success Story’, the album will include over 300 large stickers of the Prime Minister throughout his political career, including addressing mass meetings, campaigning and meeting people.
“This will be one of the most detailed publications we have ever released and will act as a lovely memory of Joseph Muscat, one of the most loved and successful leaders in Malta’s history,” Album & Co said.
The album will cost €12.99 and a packet of five stickers will cost €1.50, and Album & Co are asking people to reserve their copies through their Facebook page or at any stationary.
Within hours of the announcement, many came forward with criticism and jokes on the issue, with popular satirical page Bis-Serjeta’ Biss jokingly quoting Kim Jon-Un as saying the idea was “a bit much”.
