Speaking to the media outside Partit Nazzjonalista’s headquarters in Pietà, Debono said that the Party will take all the appropriate measures. However he failed to provide such examples.

Debono stressed on the need to have a detailed discussion on the results obtained by the party in the recently held elections. He said that if activists leave the party, then the party will not find its strength.

The newly chosen MP who had already served a short while until Delia’s co-option, said that an internal discussion is needed prior to speaking to the media about the concrete actions needed.

When asked by how would he rate his performance as chief political adviser, Debono said that his role is chief political coordinator but did not comment further.

Speaking about the Executive Committee President Mark Anthony Sammut’s resignation, Debono said that there were many points on which he agreed however he did not agree with his resignation. On Sammut he concluded by saying that he voted for him to stay on, however Sammut’s decision was final.
