Both party leaders began by expressing their condolences to Joseph Muscat for the passing of his father on Monday.

“I would like to take this opportunity to extend my condolences to the Muscat family for the loss of Salvu Muscat. We can agree on absolutely nothing, but if we can agree on one thing, it is definitely regarding the immense respect we all have for our parents. Without a doubt, the loss of Salvu Muscat is a tremendous loss to the Muscat family, and this is why I want to offer my condolences in a public manner.”

Abela also opened the debate by offering his condolences to the Muscat family, adding that he had the opportunity to personally offer his condolences to Joseph Muscat.

He went on to say, “Perhaps from this unfortunate experience, the lesson is that reciprocal respect, regardless of a difference in political opinions, is something we should uphold on a daily basis.”

Muscat’s father passed away on Monday after a two and a half year-long battle with an aggressive tumour. On Monday, the former Prime Minister announced the sad news, saying that his father had originally only been given a few months to live but he kept on fighting.

“I was hoping he would live to see his third Festa tas-Salvatur, which he used to live for during his time fighting the tumour. However, everything turned around in the past 24 hours,” Muscat said.
