Protest notes demanding change are being stuck on the doors of some of the Nationalist Party’s każini in light of its historic loss to the Labour Party at the European Parliament elections.
The notes, which all carry the words ‘We deserve better’, have appeared on at least four PN każini – in Swieqi, St Julian’s, St Paul’s Bay and Sliema.
Opposition leader Adrian Delia has yet to comment on the result, but PN secretary general Clyde Puli has promised that Delia will remain at the helm of the party until at least the next general election.
Both Puli and PN deputy leader Robert Arrigo said the PN had exceeded expectations, noting that surveys over the past year had predicted they would lose by anything between 60,000 and 100,000 votes.
Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has appealed for national unity and has extended an olive branch to the Nationalist Party, pledging that he is willing to work with their two MEPs and appealing that they do the same.
