Veteran politician Louis Galea, who was tasked with handling the reforms within the Nationalist Party, has categorically denied that he is being pushed, or wants to take Adrian Delia's position as Leader.

This morning, the website Inews wrote an article titled "Louis Galea pushed to take over the PN as interim leader?"

Galea said that there is no truth that there are many who are backing the appointmentof an interim leader with Galea mentioned as the person most fit for this position at this moment, and that there is no truth that some MPs have indicated that they want him to take up such a post.


He said that when in July he met Adrian Delia's request to help in the party's process, he had categorically declared that he has no intention to accept any post within the party, let alone the post of Interim Leader, aside from helping in the reform as a service to Leader Adrian Delia and the party.

"It is clear that Inews and their sources are not pleased at all that the PN has embarked on a reform process. As happened in the past, those who do not want the PN to strengthen are actively trying to obscure the process, while issuing misinformation."
