PM decided over Mizzi’s fate but will not make an announcement today

Joseph Muscat is under immense pressure to react to public outrage over the Panama accounts

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat will face his party delegates today in the eye of his most serious storm in government.

He is not expected to announce any resignation decisions for either Minister Konrad Mizzi or chief of staff Keith Schembri, but he has privately decided what his next steps will be after the finalisation of the audit reports being carried out by the Inland Revenue department on Mizzi.

The Prime Minister will also make it clear that he will not be swayed by pollsters, and hysterics and protests but by rationality and reason. Muscat, who is also himself being asked to resign by Simon Busuttil, will conclude the Labour party general conference, which ostensibly welcomed Konrad Mizzi as the new party deputy leader.

Muscat is under immense pressure to react to public outrage over the Panama accounts, but he is unwilling to part with his traditional approach to a crisis and is willing to wait for the conclusions of the audit report. He will tell his audience that he considers the situation as very preoccupying.
