Ian Borg says he was encouraged to contest PL leadership

Asked by TVM if he will contest the election for leadership of the Labour Party, Minister Ian Borg reiterated that, at this stage, the priority is unity; however he said that he is being encouraged to contest the election.

Dr Borg stated that currently the Labour Party does not need persons to speak about their candidature, but he added it is a time for joint reflection and to see who has the best qualities.

He said that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat did a very good job during the past eleven years and that his successor will face a very difficult task to be in his heels.

Speaking to TVM, Dr Borg stated that he was encouraged by various people to contest and he will see how he can contribute with his skills. However, he repeated that unity is a priority for him and the party, which he said is the biggest difference between the government and the Opposition camp.

No Labour Party exponent contacted by TVM has yet confirmed at this stage of contesting the election for a new leader to replace Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.
