Pjazza Kastilja was a place of comings and goings as members of the Labour Party Parliamentary Group entered and left after being called for by new Prime Minister Robert Abela as discussions were held about the composition of his new Government Cabinet.
Over a nine hour period, those entering Kastilja were Chris Fearne, Silvio Schembri, Justyne Caruana, Chris Cardona, Owen Bonnici, Clifton Grima, Evarist Bartolo, Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi, Clayton Bartolo and Michael Falzon, there being only two exceptions from the previous Joseph Muscat Cabinet.
Both Dr Fearne as well as Dr Cardona paid two visits among indications that discussions with Dr Abela included possible changes to their portfolio which were the Health Ministry and the Economic Development Ministry respectively.
None of the MPs involved divulged any details regarding the composition of a new Cabinet and stated the PM will announce the new Cabinet in due course.
Among indications that Owen Bonnici may have been offered a new portfolio instead of the Justice Ministry, he stated the meeting with Dr Abela had been a positive one while Evarist Bartolo said he is willing to serve the country in the best manner possible in any capacity.
The indications all point to a substantial change in Dr Abela’s new Cabinet.
A Kastilja visitor was also the Chairman of the Council for Science and Technology, Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando, who commented he already holds a capacity and he is proud of the capacity he holds.
TVM is informed the new Cabinet will be taking oaths tomorrow afternoon at the Presidential Palace.
