Former Nationalist Party MP Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando was seen entering Castille on Tuesday during which time Prime Minister Robert Abela is holding talks before he announces a new cabinet.

He claimed, following the meeting, that he would retain his role at the Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST), a role, he said, which he was very fond of.

When pressed by journalists outside on whether he has been offered a new role after the meeting, Pullicino replied in the negative.

“I already have a job which I’m very fond of and satisfied with,” he said. He added that he was unwilling to disclose what was discussed in a possible meeting he had with the new Prime Minister.

Pullicino Orlando accepted to contest in the 2017 general elections with the Labour Party but failed to get re-elected at the time.
