In an exclusive interview with sister newspaper Illum, Guzè Ellul Mercer’s son Martin Ellul reveals that he is going to be one of the Labour Party’s candidates in the next general elections.
“Yes, I’m going to run with Labour in the coming elections,” Ellul says. “I was never comfortable growing up as a Nationalist, even though I came from a Nationalist family.”
Ellul adds: “In my blood runs the same sympathy which my father had towards the less fortunate.”
In the interview, Ellul also recounts how at the age of 10 he learnt that he had been adopted and that his biological father was the renowned author and politician.
