PN parliamentary group in limbo following March 10 electoral fiasco

Despite sustaining a heavy defeat in the March 10 local council elections, Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi has not yet summoned his parliamentary group to discuss the electoral fallout, and party whip confirms “nothing is scheduled so far.”

Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi has not summoned his parliamentary group to discuss the PN's most recent defeat at the polls, where it lost a  staggering 11,500 votes and lost the mayorships in Safi and St. Paul's Bay.

As a MaltaToday poll put Labour in a 14 point lead over the PN, the March 10 elections in 35 localities - which included Sliema and already had a resignation - triggered Gonzi to react with a promise to "listen more to the people."

But while his special delegate Simon Busuttil struggles to get the party closer to the people, MP Franco Debono has kept up his rant against the leadership, and exposing the party which is being led by what he described as an "oligarchy."

Contacted by MaltaToday, PN parliamentary whip David Agius confirmed that no parliamentary group meeting has been held since the March 10 result, and added that "so far no meeting is scheduled."

Meanwhile, Labour's parliamentary whip Joe Mizzi said that Labour MPs have met since the March 10 elections, and another meeting is scheduled for next week.

It's the country that is in LIMBO after a four year taste of Gonzipn & his oligarchy's administration, or lack of it from Gonzipn's POOL OF LIMITED TALENT!

Laqghat ohra interessanti jithabbru aktar tard .......

Sur Editur, Mela ma tafx li il Limbu spicca,( min jaf x`sar minnhom min kien ghadu hemm ).Ikolli nghejd li bhal issa il Partit Nazzjonalista, jew qeghed f`tarf l`irdum, jistenna ziffa rih u ghal isfel...jew qeghedin taht xi sur u qeghedin jitolbu l`Alla biex igarrfu fuqhom...Ara qeghed niccajta ta...Xi tridhom jaghmlu Sur Editur, ghal maghmul ma hemmx kunsill. Issa jitfarfru naqra u qisu ma gara xejn. Kemm il disfatta kellhom dawn l-ahhar 10 snin ? Nahseb li il problema hija l-oppozizjoni, ghax donna kuntenta fl`oppozizjoni...

X'indifferenza! Basta il-kapo Gonzi baghat jisimghu n-nies u maghhom baghat lil Simon Busttil. Meta hu ma tantx jidher herqan li jisma' x'ghandu xi jghidlu l-grupp parlamentari tieghu stess. Tghid Gonzi rassenjat li r-rih tal-bidla ma jistax jieqaflu jew qed se jilghab il-karti tieghu permezz Simon u t-tliet slaten Magi? X'arranganza tinjora lill-back benchers fil-grupp parlamentari, ghax forsi l-Ministri b'xi mod jiltaqghu f'kabinett. Imbaghad Franco Debono, Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando, Jeffrey Mugliett teatrini biss. jaqghu sellfu lill-bajd ghal xi figolla?
