Robert Abela’s Cabinet announcement was the newly-elected Prime Minister’s first big task following his party’s landslide win last weekend, but it was one of the ministers’ daughters who stole the show at yesterday’s swearing in ceremony.
The high-profile event saw President of Malta George Vella swearing in the new Cabinet of Ministers and Parliamentary Secretaries together with Robert Abela and, in a recent post, Aaron Farrugia’s daughter was spotted finding comfort in her soft toy companion during the ceremony.
“Even though he wasn’t on the official invitations, the soft toy had to come for the swearing in ceremony”, Farrugia said jokingly in the Facebook post published earlier today. Formerly the Minister for Environment, the 42-year-old has been just been granted the super Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects.
While the appointment of Malta’s new Prime Minister and Cabinet is something to respect and congratulate, it has been the children of Malta’s politicians who have really won the nation’s heart, with Prime Minister Robert Abela’s daughter Giorgia Mae being the star of Monday’s Valletta celebrations.
