Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia claimed that the Opposition and President George Vella were fulfilling their duties in the current constitutional crisis. ‘It is up to the government parliamentary group to remove Joseph Muscat from Office,’ said the Opposition leader on Friday.

In a televised message, Delia spoke after an urgent meeting with the President held on Friday early afternoon. Partit Nazzjonalista’s parliamentary group was convened following the meeting with the President.

According to Delia, it now lies with Partit Laburista MPs to take action and remove Muscat from office. He added that the government MPs were duty bound to do so by the Constitution.

“Malta first,” Delia concluded.

President George Vella reiterated that he could not remove Muscat from office as this would be in breach of the constitution.
