Prime Minister and leader of Partit Laburista (PL) Joseph Muscat said that if the Partit Nazzjonalista (PN) has not learnt the lesson following ten consecutive electoral defeats then he will prepare his party to give then the eleventh loss in the next general election.
During his intervention in a political rally in Valletta, the Prime Minister said that the two PN candidates elected to be member of the European Parliament could not wait to run out of the country to continue doing what they had been doing prior to the election.
Joseph Muscat also said that this historic victory is a result of the unity that reigns amongst the PL ranks were egoism has been shed off, and this is what makes the party so different.
