PN MEP Roberta Metsola said that she is 'considering all options' in a Facebook post.

People close to Metsola confirmed that all options are on the table, when asked whether she is considering running for the post of PN Leader.  "This was never about her personal ambition, but about how to make the PN a government in waiting. At the moment she is in discussions with people within the party on the way forward and on how to heal the party," they said.


Writing on Facebook, Metsola said that this is an important moment in the history of the party.

"As I said before the vote, this is not the time for personal ambitions, but the aim should be the best interest of the party and the country. This is what I will be discussing in the coming hours. From my end, I will consider all choices and I will not exclude anything. As I always said and did, I am ready to do my part wherever it is needed. In the coming house we need to discuss where we will head and from where we will start off. I want the road ahead towards a serious and credible party include everyone through profound discussions with respect so that we will start working for unity now, and heal our wounds."

On Saturday, the PN's General Council voted for a leadership election to take place.
