The Nationalist Party’s new administration needs to be given time to settle and find its feet after what has been a very challenging year for the party, according to a majority of people who spoke with MaltaToday in Valletta this afternoon.

People walking through the streets of the capital were asked people how they felt about the leadership of the party, now that it had two new deputy leaders.

A considerable number of people preferred not to comment, with some claiming they did not follow the news, or didn’t feel that it made any difference to their lives.

Others however were more optimistic, expressing hope about the new leadership’s chances of bringing about positive change. “It’s a good moment for us to continue strengthening the party,” said one man in Valletta.

Another said it was premature to be commenting on how the new leadership would be working together, with a third insisting that the party had better take stock of what its representatives were for the country. By "harming" the country,  he added, the PN was harming workers.
