Every hour of inaction is causing irreparable damage to Malta’s reputation, PN leader Adrian Delia told his followers on Facebook during a live broadcast this evening.
Explaining how he had met President George Vella again today, Delia said he had appealed for everything to be done for this “unprecedented situation” to be addressed.
Making reference to Dutch MPs asking whether they should still share confidential information with Malta and its secret services, Delia said the integrity of our international standing is already weakening.
“The Prime Minister does not understand that him staying in his position is the biggest obstacle to a just investigation.”
Referring to the current state of affairs as a “constitutional crisis”, Delia did not only call Joseph Muscat part of the problem, but “the biggest part of the problem and cannot consider himself part of the solution”.
“Every minute, every day, that Joseph Muscat stays on as Prime Minister, grows the risk for this country, including the risk for justice not to happen.”
Appealing to the people who can take decisions “to safeguard the country’s highest interest, without looking at colours, face, and without fear or favour,” Delia’s message was clear: “The country needs you.”
“Prime Minister Joseph Muscat should resign immediately for the good of the country,” the Opposition Leader ended.
