The country is demanding an apology from the government after it dragged the country into the sorry state it is in now, said Independent MP Marlene Farrugia.

Speaking in Parliament, Farrugia said that the people are waiting for reassurance and an explanation about everything that has happened in relation to the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

“This is not business as usual. On the first day of Parliament, our Gozo Minister did not even step into parliament this morning,” Farrugia said, referring to the resignation of Justyne Caruana after her husband Silvio Valletta, a former deputy police commissioner, was linked to the man accused of complicity in the murder, Yorgen Fenech.

“If parliament is meant to gain respect and strength, we need to use parliament to provide strength to our country. I hope that the new Prime Minister does the right thing and makes the necessary apologies and explanations the country needs.”

She said the people are also still waiting for an explanation as to why the electricity keeps going on and off and how Prime Minister Robert Abela plans to take the county forward. “How can we move forward and speak of rule of law when we do not admit our mistakes?”
