Watch: Summer break for political Sunday sermons

Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia said that there will be no Sunday activities for now, since it is on a break. Replying to questions from Newsbook.com.mt, the Nationalist leader was asked why the traditional Sunday party activities were not being held.

Following the May elections, Partit Nazzjonalista has now entered its third week of not holding its Sunday sermon. On the other hand Partit Laburista continued with its activities in the form of one to one interviews with party leader Joseph Muscat.

Delia explained following the electoral campaign, people had “too much of the same thing” adding that he thinks that the electorate is now looking forward to more refreshing things rather than heavily partisan discourse. He further explained that his idea is to have a little break and then have issues which people are talking about on the agenda.

Data leak

When asked about a possible data leak to General Workers’ Union weekly newspaper It-Torċa, said that he could not understand how such claim was made when “these are petitions which were running around with loads of people involved”. Delia added the way petitions work, is that many people are involved. He denied any breach of data.

On Sunday former PN’s executive committee president Mark Anthony Sammut said that each petition paper had 10 signatures and that only Ivan Bartolo had access to the complete list. Sammut along with four other PN councillors presented a petition asking the general council to convene and debate Delia’s leadership. The petition asks for a secret ballot on whether Delia should shoulder responsibility for the electoral results.
