Newly-elected MEP Francis Zammit Dimech has announced he will contest the European elections in 2019 for the Nationalist Party.

“This will be an important test for me but also important test for the Nationalist Party,” he said. “This will be the process were the people will vote once more to elect the six MEPs that will represent them in the European Parliament.” 

Zammit Dimech announced his decision during an activity for all activists and volunteers. He also described the preparations underway for him to start his political work when the European Parliament reconvenes after the summer recess. 

Zammit Dimech said that the European Parliament represented the peoples of the European Union, and it was therefore also the parliament of all the Maltese and Gozitans.

It would be his duty as an MEP to be the voice of the Maltese within the European Parliament, as well as a voice for the PN in the EPP Group. He said he would work to ensure that the interests of the Maltese and Gozitans form an integral part of the European project. 

Zammit Dimech also commented on the current PN leadership contest, with Adrian Delia, Chris Said, Alex Perici Calascione and Frank Portelli vying to replace Simon Busuttil at the helm of the party.

“Whatever the choice will be, it will be a moment of courage and political renewal for the Nationalist Party,” he said.
