On Facebook, Cyrus Engerer said that he welcomed the Prime Minister and Labour leader Joseph Muscat’s invitation to be a candidate for the upcoming elections.
Engerer said that when he was attending EP meetings in Brussels and heard attacks against Malta without being able to speak, because the MEP is the one to intervene, he felt extremely helpless. He said he is determined to put forward the Maltese voice.
