Nationalist Party MEP Roberta Metsola asked organisers for her seating position to be changed at a university debate with candidates contesting the next European Parliament election.

Labour MEP candidate Cyrus Engerer claimed on Twitter on Friday that organisers informed him that Metsola refused to be seated next to him. "You can hide but we will never be afraid to face you," Engerer said, calling Metsola “a chicken”.

Metsola told sister newspaper Illum she had no issue but her seating position was changed just the same.
