Partit Demokratiku this evening said it has been informed that the party’s nomination of a member to fill the vacancy at the Permanent Commission against Corruption needs to come solely from the Opposition Leader and not from PD.

PD said in a statement that it "firmly believes that this commission must be up and running at all costs".

As such, PD leader Anthony Buttigieg contacted PN Leader Adrian Delia suggesting that he nominates Mr Micallef for the position.


"PD knows that Mr Micallef is the ideal candidate for the position and will be of great service to the nation. It is in this spirit that we believe it is irrelevant from what source the nomination comes, as long as it is made.

"As a nation we need to work against this scourge of graft and corruption. Party politics should not be a factor."

PD nominated Micallef to fill the vacancy on Thursday.
