Slain journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia has paid the highest price, Partit Nazzjonalista said in a reaction to the final address made by outgoing Partit Laburista leader Joseph Muscat who claimed that he paid the highest price.

On Friday, Muscat addressed Labour supporters one final time as their leader. In December, Muscat announced he will resign his post after a new leader is elected. His announcement had come after Daphne Caruana Galizia murder suspect, Electrogas director and 17 Black owner Yorgen Fenech in connect to the murder.

In a statement, Partit Nazzjonalista remarked that Muscat refrained from mentioning the corruption which festered under his watch and state capture.

‘Muscat made some surreal declarations,’ the Opposition said. It added that the outgoing Prime Minister was still trying to take the people for a ride.
