Alicia Bugeja Said, Rebecca Buttigieg to become parliamentary secretaries

Newly elected Labour MPs Rebecca Buttigieg and Alicia Bugeja Said will be sworn in as parliamentary secretaries on Thursday.

Buttigieg was elected through a casual election on the 9th district, whereas Bugeja Said was elected through the gender corrective mechanism. 

Butigieg will be appointed parliamentary secretary for reforms and equality within Byron Camilleri’s Home Affairs Ministry. 

Meanwhile, Bugeja Said, who is a former director of Malta’s fisheries department, will become parliamentary secretary for fishing and aquaculture within Anton Refalo’s Agriculture Ministry. 

This comes after the Prime Minister announced after the swearing in of cabinet members that two women MPs were poised to join his cabinet. The two will be joining Miriam Dalli, Julia Farrugia Portelli and Alison Zerafa Civelli in cabinet.

President roles should alternate between men and women suggests Joseph Muscat

President roles should alternate between men and women suggests Joseph Muscat

Former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has spoken out about the gender quota mechanism, giving his take on even presidential matters. The former PL leader proposed that the role of president should be alternated between men and women. 

Due to the mechanism, 22 women made their way into parliament, with female representation boosted to 29% rather than 10-14%. Muscat labelled this as a great improvement on the usual seminars which take place in order to discuss female representation. 

Muscat said that rather than having a female president once every 30 years to make a statement, proper change is needed and this is a change which should make the Labour Party proud of itself. 

Muscat said that, with 29% of all members in parliament being women, the percentage is closer to the minimum ideal of 33%. ‘The equal representation percentage would be of 40% but when one considers that the median average since the 90s was less than 16%, it is a great improvement’ he said. 

Muscat also aimed his criticism at the slew of misogynistic comments which pop up whenever the topic of female representation comes up. ‘Comments like ‘women of substance’ in politics were part of the yearly recipe whenever Woman’s Day came around, it is as though all men have substance’ he said. 

Muscat also harkened back to when former PL prime minister Alfred Sant tried to enact the change needed 25 years ago but was not given enough time to do so. ‘Sant was at the forefront of this change and thanks to him the Labour Party does not need any mechanisms to elect female executive members within the party.’ 

‘Men were scared of losing their place in Parliament and they did not fully understand that women would not be replacing men but be equal to them’ said Muscat.
