Labour Party (PL) Member of Parliament (MP) Chris Cardona stated that he is not resigning.

Net News has reported that its sources confirmed that Prime Minister Robert Abela is being pressured into removing Cardona, who would resign not only as MP but also as Deputy Leader of the party.

Cardona told Newsbook.com.mt that he has no plans to resign.

This week, Melvin Theuma stated that Chris Cardona’s number was saved in a phone found during the Marsa raid. Theuma said that he is the middleman in Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination. The raid had occurred due to this assassination, and had led to the arrest of three men who are being accused of planting the bomb in Bidnija.

Chris Cardona had told Newsbook.com.mt that the Police never questioned him about the phone with his mobile number saved on it.

In November, Chris Cardona was being interrogated at the Police Headquarters in Furjana. The interrogation included questions on the journalist’s murder. He was released and is not facing any accusations.

Cardona resigned, but Prime Minister Joseph Muscat later announced that he is to return as Minister and Deputy Leader. Cardona was not given a spot on Robert Abela’s cabinet.
