Tista' taqra bil- Malti.
I am ready to serve Partit Laburista and the country, lawyer and PL general election candidate Andy Ellul said on Facebook.
The former police officer who is a criminal lawyer and government policy advisor said that he has received various messages from people highlighting the lack of a MP in the House of Representatives from the fourth district. He noted that this could only be addressed through co-option.
Government backbench MP Etienne Grech resigned from parliament on Wednesday, Partit Laburista announced in a statement amid rumours that former Gozo minister Justyne Caruana was also planning to quit.
Grech resigned two weeks after the resignation of disgraced former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.
Both Grech and Muscat will be replaced by an individual who is coopted to parliament, after Grech had been elected through a casual election himself and no nominations were submitted following Muscat’s resignation.
MEP Miriam Dalli is among the possible candidates to replace Muscat.
