Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Joseph Muscat said that he wished his political life had a different ending.

The Prim Minister made this statement during an interview on his party’s TV station, One. Muscat said that he wished his political career had a different ending but that he thinks that the things which had to be done were done.

Muscat claimed that he preferred paying with the price of political life for a breakthrough in the case of the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Muscat also said that he doesn’t mind the sequence of events which happened so long that the country knows what happened. He stated that he didn’t want to be like others who claimed that they knew who killed Karin Grech or Raymond Caruana and remained silent.

Everyone gets what they deserve – Michelle Muscat

His wife Michelle Muscat, who was also present, referred to Caruana Galizia’s assassination as “this case” and said that she always told her husband that justice had to be carried out.

Michelle Muscat added that she never believed “in these things” and that everyone should get what they deserve. She also said that in the future history would show that “this case” got solved. She also insisted that they were “serene”.

Don’t be afraid to eliminate the bad – Joseph Muscat

Muscat was also asked what advice he would give to Chris Fearne and Robert Abela – the two PL MPs contesting their party’s leadership election.

“I urged both of them to contest the general election,” said Muscat. He advised them to remain positive, keep the things which were working, and to not be afraid to eliminate the bad. Muscat also added that he wasn’t going to be offended if they were to get rid of things he implemented.

The outgoing PL leader also said that one shouldn’t be expecting him to be front and centre in the political arena. He stressed that the new leader will be requiring space to work in. However, Muscat offered to assist if need be. Muscat also said that people could expect to see more of his wife than of himself in politics.
