Daniel Micallef to contest post of PL Deputy Leader for Party Affairs

The President of the Labour Party, Daniel Micallef, will be contesting the role of Deputy Leader for Party Affairs. Nominations open on Friday evening and close on Sunday at 11.00 a.m.

During yesterday’s session of the Extraordinary General Conference of the Labour Party, a motion was approved which amends the statute, so that whoever is appointed to this post cannot be an MP, and also cannot contest the general election for a period of two years after resigning from the post.

Mr Micallef, an architect, said he will be contesting with a sense of humility, determination and love for the party which has grown, and in which he has worked. Mr Micallef has been president of the Labour Party since 2013.

The post of Deputy Leader for Party Affairs has been vacant following the resignation of Dr Chris Cardona. The election will be held on Saturday 25 July and the extraordinary general conference ends tomorrow.
