A PN councillor has announced he has resigned from the party as he finds himself disappointed that long-awaited change within the party never arrived.

“There remains many of those who believe they can dictate what should or shouldn’t happen. I don’t work like that,” Jonathan Dingli said in a public statement.

“After waiting months in the hope that there would be some form of change in the Nationalist Party, till today this has not happened and in my opinion will never happen or if it is going to happen one day, it is still far away.”

Explaining that he had made his intentions clear to the PN’s secretary general as well as the Mqabba local council, Dingli said it wasn’t easy to take this stop as he “loved” doing what he did.

“I tried, but it was for nothing.”

Dingli then quoted former PN leader Adrian Delia’s words: “If I have faith, I’ll remain; if I do not, I will bow my head and leave.”

His resignation comes after Delia and his supporters gave a show of force at a recent public Independence Day speech by PN leader Bernard Grech. 

He thanked everyone who had supported him over the years as well as the “genuine” Nationalists who he had spoken to ahead of his decision.

“I know there wil be those who hate me for this, or won’t speak to me anymore, or will give me bad looks. It doesn’t matter. Life goes on. Just know, I felt this pain, and no one else,” he said, before ending by saying: “it’s the authentic ones who always get hurt…”
