Malta Chamber of Commerce President David Xuereb has called on President George Vella to step in and be "a force that brings about balance and statesmanship during these troubled times," according to a report in The Malta Business Observer,

Xuereb said that while the President''s role is limited by the Constitution, he can still affect positive change since the President who is "a highly respected individual," is in the right position and possesses the right qualities to make a difference.

Xuereb's call comes after Constitutional law expert Kevin Aquilina made a similar request of the President.

Xuereb said that the failure to resolve the situation in a fast manner will have 'dire economic ramifications'.
