Exclusive: PM says he will resign… in January

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Newsbook is reliably informed that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has announced in a top level meeting at Girgenti that he will be stepping down from the premiership around the date of the Epiphany, the first week of January. This announcement was made during another agitated meeting at the PM’s summer residence at Girgenti. After the meeting he sped out of the gated residence giving no comment. 

The decision, long awaited in the media both in Malta and  internationally, comes in the wake of ground-shattering revelations of a murder plot whose ramifications led straight into the heart of government.
