Former PN MEP candidate Peter Agius calls on Delia to ‘consult party members again’

Former PN MEP candidate Peter Agius has called on embattled PN leader Adrian Delia to “consult party members again” on his leadership.

“The Nationalist Party is but a tool to change our country for the better. To do this we need to move out of the present situation characterised by confusion in the minds of party members and doubts on our ability to bring change by the wider electorate”, Agius said in a statement on Friday.

Agius’statement comes after Delia lost two votes of confidence and survived a bid to oust him from the post of Opposition leader in the span of a week. Delia lost the support of his parliamentary group and, last Tuesday, his party’s executive as well.

“Party leader Dr Adrian Delia can no longer take party members' support as a given after two important resolutions by MPs and the PN Executive Committee”, Agius said.

 “It is clear that party members need to be consulted again”, the former MEP candidate, who is still involved within the party through one of its recently revealed ‘clusters’, said.

“I call on all for moderation in our language and approach and express my hope in party structures to be deployed with useful effect in expedient resolution of the current crises”, he concluded.
