He should gave this post to Cyrus Engerer, his new friend or he doesn't trust him. On a postive note congratulation Claudette for your new post.

Intelligent, hardwork, totally dedicated - one hell of a determined woman. Very good choice and I'm sure Claudette will make a success of it. . Just one word of advice to Claudette. Don't tell Joseph only what he would like to hear. That's what the other side have been doing to Gonzi and look where it led him.

Finally a selection totally deserved. Claudette is someone who has paid her dues and is an intelligent future political representative and a great asset to the PL. Let's all hope that she will be instrumental in introducing policies that will clearly define the party's standing in state administration and move forward a party policy of better women participation.
