Labour Party deputy leader Chris Cardona formally brought down the curtain on a 24-year parliamentary career after presenting his resignation letter to Speaker Anġlu Farrugia this evening.

Cardona had confirmed his intention to resign his seat in Parliament yesterday, but told Newsbook.com.mt that he continue to serve as Labour’s deputy leader for party affairs.

The Birkirkara lawyer was first elected to Parliament as a 24-year-old in 1996, and has always been confirmed to his seat since. In his resignation letter, he said that having spent half his life as an MP, he felt that he had contributed enough to Parliament.
