Local councillors elected on Partit Nazzjonalista’s ticket met at the party’s headquarters at Tal-Pietà. The meeting was called by the party’s Secretary General Clyde Puli, who will be holding a series of meetings with the Nationalist local councillors.
Puli is expected to seek re-election as PN secretary general in the upcoming internal elections. Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia had tasked veteran politician Louis Galea with the writing of a report on the party’s reform. Galea is expected to finish four months ahead of schedule. This led to postponing the internal elections which will be held after the recommendations are adopted.
During the meeting, mayors, deputy mayors and local councillors had the opportunity to discuss the challenges they encounter during their work, Partit Nazzjonalista said. The elected officials highlighted that work undertaken by the government in their locality takes place without prior consultation with the local councils. They also spoke about finance issues which the local councils face, this is leading to a situation where they cannot fully operate and carry out their duties.
The President of Partit Nazzjonalista’s College of Local Councillors Charles Bonello was also present during the meeting.
