Thousands gathered this afternoon at Castille square in Valletta as part of a demonstration led by the Nationalist Party in reaction to recent allegations of Michelle Muscat’s connection with Egrant Inc.
During his address the Leader of Opposition Simon Busuttil urged President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca to call for the resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.
The Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament, Manfred Weber, issued a statement in a press release while the rally was taking place calling for Joseph Muscat to resign.
“It is unprecedented that a Prime Minister of a country holding the Presidency of the EU is under formal magisterial investigation and he still refuses to resign,” Weber said.
