The Nationalist Party said today that the recent changes at the top posts of Enemalta are nothing more than a continuation of Joseph Muscat's legacy and a smokescreen for scandals and abuse.

“The appointment of Jonathan Cardona is a continuation of Joseph Muscat and will only serve so that the government and the PL continue to cover the scandals and abuse committed during the last eight years,” the PN said in a statement.

The appointment of Cardona shows how Prime Minister Robert Abela and Energy Minister Miriam Dalli do not believe in meritocracy. The appointee does not have any credentials and experience in the energy sector, the PN said.

“Jonathan Cardona was and still is very close to Joseph Muscat, Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi, to the extent that he was entrusted for many years with the passport scheme along with Henley & Partners, which contributed to the greylisting of Malta.”

It said that Cardona was seen celebrating with Joseph Muscat, when the Egrant inquiry was published and was part of “the system of the Labour Government with which it took over the country’s institutions.”

“The PN will keep insisting that the money that was stolen from the Maltese and Gozitans is refunded, due to the fact that we buy electricity from the Electrogas power station, even when it is not the cheapest source,” the party said.
