Proxy votes were issued for people who did not ask for their vote in the first place: this was illegal, irrespectively of Debono's resignation

Jean Pierre Debono's resignation from Parliament, paving the way for a casual election and an eventual co-option of the Nationalist Party's new leader Adrian Delia to parliament, should not detract attention away from the fact that Debono was accused by the PN’s electoral commission of handling forged voting proxies, days prior to the leadership election.

Forgery or handling of forged documents is unethical, even criminal, and should not be forgotten or forgiven simply because Debono had resigned from Parliament, when so many other MPs had refused to cede their seat to Delia.

One cannot not forget that some people who did not collect their vote discovered that Debono had collected their vote for them, with a proxy document they never signed for him. This is illegal and criminal.
