Opposition leader Bernard Grech has suggested that the PN’s latest devastating survey performance could have something to do with signs that the COVID-19 pandemic is on the decline in Malta.
Interviewed on NET today, Grech was immediately asked about today’s MaltaToday survey, which estimated that the PL is on course to win the next election by a historic margin of 48,000 votes.
Presenter Robert Cremona reminded Grech of his promise last April to take “tough” decisions to make the party more popular, a pledge which is yet to materialise.
“What message do you have to people who are expecting answers?” he asked.
Grech responded that while the PN has to implement “certain changes”, the survey must be viewed within its context.
“Today’s survey shows that the party is practically in the same position it was in after the last survey while the gap between the party leaders has reduced,” he said. “This shows that we’re getting our message across but that the party isn’t being as convincing it should be.”
“We’re also emerging from a pandemic which means there’s a certain feel-good factor that could have increased the gap between the parties. I’ll keep working to make the PN a stronger party that truly listens to and takes heed of what people are saying. I believe that we will progress if we take heed of this message.”
