MaltaToday’s managing editor Saviour Balzan has taken to a videoblog to send a very clear message to Prime Minister Joseph Muscat; resign immediately, before the situation gets “desperate”.
“I have a short message, and I think it’s on behalf of all those people who haven’t taken to the streets in protest yet,” Balzan started. “The silent majority, the people who gave their support to this government, who believed what they heard.”
“Today, it’s clear that in the corridors of Castille, there was clear knowledge of who was behind the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia,” Balzan continued. “There isn’t just a political responsibility, but there’s big clarity that there was an attempt for an obstruction of justice.”
“Today, I’d go so far as to say the police actually knew certain things and they didn’t investigate further,” he continued. “It is impossible that the Prime Minister didn’t know what was happening either.”
“It’s impossible to carry on in this situation.”
“We cannot wait until the 12th of January,” Balzan went on. “Joseph Muscat needs to resign now.”
Balzan then shifted his focus towards what he believes would happen should Joseph Muscat be allowed to resign in January instead of now.
“There will be chaos, a disaster, there will be unrest in this country,” he said. “And this country does not deserve it.”
“This has nothing to do with the Labour Party, or the Nationalist Party, or the people who are out protesting, or the even larger majority of people who are disgusted with this all, with all the facts that are coming out,” Balzan ended. “I pray that, today, the Prime Minister goes to the President and resigns. This country will end up in a desperate situation, and no one should hold back and not say what they need to say.”
