A brief pause from the debate.
He said that because of this problem, European countries do not value Malta even in the field of migration, and therefore, according to Grech they do not even want to discuss with Malta seriously.
Grech said that Malta has a credibility problem, because Malta's name took the fault of four people who abducted the Labour Party. He explained that they seized not only the institutions but also wherever they could in any way make money.
Bernard Grech said it was true that he accepted Delia's request to contest the general election because he was tired of seeing PN fall in the public opinion poll and wanted to do something to help.
Delia also spoke about education where he said that the Government has made a dent in this sector and, therefore, the PN can be an alternative.
Adrian Delia said that the band of people who decide the election is growing because they have no ties with a particular party. He said that PN could never accept all the corruption committed in the last three years by the Labour Government.
Delia said that the PN is attracting new people and mentioned the example of Bernard Grech who came to the PN at the request of Delia himself.
He stated that young people are already approaching to help in political discussion. At the same time he said he wants people who have left the PN, and they want the PN to be credible.
On how the PN can attract the talent of young politicians, Bernard Grech said that if you do not have union, you cannot build anything because if you have a divided party no one will be tempted to approach the Party.
Grech said respect, support and loyalty are not given once, but are earned every day. He said that union is not only in the Parliamentary Group, but there are also the organs of the Party, the Sectional Committees, where he said that even these today are unfortunately deserted, and according to Grech they are far from the leadership.
Delia says that there will be union if there is good will on both sides. He noted that it is not possible for someone to want unity and at the same time lies.
Adrian Delia said he never had financial problems. He meant that taxes are there for the Government to make a fair distribution of wealth. He stated that he always declared all taxable income figures.
Tax question: Bernard Grech said that, as he has already repeatedly said, he could have done things better. Regarding the tax that he did not declare related to language schools, Grech said that this was a failure on the part of the school and, therefore, the tax had to be paid.
