Adrian Delia hits back at Mary Spiteri’s political rally comments

After popular local singer Mary Spiteri made a snark remark about PN supporters, Nationalist MP and former leader Adrian Delia took to Facebook to issue a public reply. 

The comments by Spiteri were made during a political rally for Health Minister Chris Fearne, with Spiteri urging people to vote PL for the 26th March general election.

The singer went on to exclaim how much the Opposition will cry, implying a certain victory for Labour. ‘Min jab kemm ser jibku, msieken. Jaħasra’ said the singer. 

The comments did not sit well with Delia, who posted a section of the video and captioning it by saying that ‘politics isn’t about who cries most or about people who ‘lose’ becoming ‘msieken’. Politics is about who manages to do good to anyone.’ 

‘No to politics of hatred. Yes to politics in favour of our Malta’ said Delia. Mary Spiteri is well known for representing Malta during the 1992 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, finishing in their place with ‘Little Child’.

‘They are boasting about being corrupt’; Bernard Grech addresses PN mass rally in Paola

'They are boasting about being corrupt'; Bernard Grech addresses PN mass rally in Paola
Mar 13 2022 Share

On Sunday evening, Nationalist Party leader Bernard Grech addressed a sizeable crowd at a mass rally in the Paola Sports Pavilion.

Grech stated that ‘Labour wants to control people’s lives’ but the people do not want to live in this oppression and on March 26th, will vote for change. He went on to state that in the polling booth, voters will make their choice alone and in silence, not through surveys and mass meetings. The PN leader highlighted that those who vote for PN on election day will be voting for change and liberty.

Circling back to the Labour Party’s past legislature, Grech stated that despite pledging to eliminate meritocracy and making Malta ‘the envy of Europe’, “they got us on the grey list.” Mirroring Robert Abela’s claims about Grech and the PN earlier today, the PN leader stated that Labour have learned nothing from their past mistakes.

With regards to the parties’ electoral manifestos, Grech stated that Labour tried to ridicule the Nationalist Party on certain manifesto mistakes and typos, while they took three weeks to publish their own which ‘only includes glittery words and nice design – because their vision does not exist.’

What do you make of Grech’s statements?

A post shared by Emma Muscat (@emmamuscat_official)

Muscat had already stated that she will be releasing a new song called ‘I Am What I Am’ on March 14th, posting a cheeky reply with a telling expression when asked if she changed her Eurovision track.

The 22-year-old won the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with her empowering track ‘Out of Sight’, securing the 12-point maximum from every single judge, as well as the public vote. Unfortunately, the track did not receive the same reaction from the international audience, with betting odds giving Malta a 1% chance of winning the contest in Turin.

In its Eurovision history, Malta has had similar situations, with Ira Losco changing her MESC-winning song ‘Chameleon’ to ‘Walk on Water’ back in 2016.
