During an interview on their respective party’s radio station, the leaders had different takes on analysing the results of the Egrant inquiry.
The Prime Minister and Labour Party leader Joseph Muscat said that the Egrant inquest’s main conclusion is that the document was falsified. He said that even though he is bound to publish the inquest document there is also the need to allow the Police to do their job and find the whole truth. The Opposition and Nationalist party leader Adrian Delia said that as the Leader of the Opposition he has a right to receive the full Egrant report, and that the Attorney General is creating a political imbalance when he is not allowing the Partit Nazzjonalista to the same access as he allowed the Government, and how the Government is systematically abusing or ignoring the system to ultimately gain overall control.

Muscat also fervently told parents to encourage their children to keep furthering their education to be able to earn better salaries.
