Marlene Farrugia and Godfrey Farrugia criticise President

MPs Marlene Farrugia and Godfrey Farrugia this morning criticised the lack of action on the part of President George Vella.

When they were entering Parliament, the two independent MPs who were elected in a coalition with the Nationalist Party,  said that they had spoken with the President and his reaction was neutral. Godfrey Farrugia said he was disgusted by Dr. Vella’s reaction and expected the President to take action in a timely manner and according to the Constitution.

Marlene Farrugia said that through his lack of action, the President was directly or indirectly collaborating with the Government by covering up the considerable problems the country has, including the Vitals contract, and placing importance only on the crisis within the Opposition.

They added that the President should take the advice given to him by Constitutional experts and appoint a new Leader of the Opposition. Godfrey Farrugia said that the President has forgotten that he must place Malta’s interest above anything else.

They said that they had never recognised Adrian Delia as Opposition Leader.

Asked whether they would be ready to re-join the PN if the leadership changes, Marlene Farrugia said, “an hour is a long time in politics” and they do not know what will happen, while they stressed the need to bring the national interest first.
