The MŻPN, the youth wing of the Nationalist Party, is adamant that party leader Adrian Delia’s position was no longer tenable after he lost a confidence vote held by the PN parliamentary group.
In a statement, made under the headline “democracy is not optional,” the MŻPN said that it was constrained to make the call after Delia insisted that he would effectively ignore the vote and return to work as though nothing happened, stating that “we have no choice but to insist and call on Delia to do the right thing and step down.
“The situation and his position is evidently no longer tenable. The allegations he faces are immense, and he has been caught misleading the media and the party itself on his relationship with the wrong kind of people,” the MŻPN said.
The movement said that business as usual was off the table after the vote.
“One cannot praise the democratic process when this works in one’s favour, and ignore it completely when it is not to one’s liking – as seen and experienced yesterday,” the MŻPN said.
“No one is greater than the Party.”
