Dance teacher and choreographer Felix Busuttil has confirmed he is “seriously considering” contesting the 2019 MEP elections on the Labour ticket.

His Facebook page, currently listed as a ‘Political Party’ posted a cryptic message a few days ago teasing a change of pace but all “in its own time”. Now, he’s confirmed with Lovin Malta that he’s almost made up his mind to run for one of the six seats available to Malta in the European Parliament.

Felix has long been a vocal advocate for LGBT+ rights, but he stepped into the political scene in mid 2017 when he spoke at a Labour mass meeting in Naxxar. 

Addressing the thousands gathered, Busuttil told the crowd “I’m Gozitan. I’m gay and in a civil union. I will soon get married. I stand behind Joseph.” 

He was the main speaker at the event, delivering his rousing speech moments before Joseph Muscat took to the stage.

The speech caused controversy among those who claimed Busuttil was earning over €50,000 a year from his position with the Malta Arts Council, but these rumours were quelled after Felix posted a copy of his contract on Facebook.

Felix strongly believes in the power of positive thinking, endless determination and perseverance and the beauty of dance in all our lives. He is proficient in political knowledge, speaks six languages and has recently obtained his master’s degree at The University of Malta in Dance Studies. He advocates the importance of culture within our children’s education and the power of music, theatre and dance that bring nations together. He believes in the undeniable rights in the pursuit of personal happiness, in equal love rights for all, in his fight for the underdog and a voice for those who do not have – animals and the environment. These aspirations have pushed Felix towards the national political platforms and have recently catapulted him to become associated deeply and fondly with the Malta Labour Party and the movement created by Malta’s present Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. He is now contesting the next 2019 Member of the European Parliament elections under the umbrella of the Malta Labour Party.
