Gender quota the biggest travesty of democracy says Arnold Cassola

Gender quota the biggest travesty of democracy says Arnold Cassola
Apr 12 2022 Share

Independent candidate Arnold Cassola has called the gender corrective mechanism the biggest travesty of democracy as it is only benefiting only PL and PN at the expense of third parties. 

Releasing a statement on Tuesday, Cassola asked whether the will of the electors is being respected or whether this is even democracy. Cassola argued that ADPD candidate Sandra Gauci got more votes than PL candidate Davina Sammut Hili, despite the latter being elected into parliament.

Cassola went on to criticise the move by PN candidate Janice Chetcuti to drop out of the casual election race on the third district to rely on the mechanism to be elected and make way for a male colleague. Carm Mifsud Bonnici was elected on Tuesday following this. 

‘Janice Chetcuti, makes a whole mockery of the supposed corrective mechanism and plays about with the system in order to ensure that her PN male colleague gets elected… at the expense of a woman’ Cassola said.

He concluded that the crux of the issue is that it is not true that the law is giving women representation in parliament according to the will of the voters.

Not the time for PN to change leader says Mark Anthony Sammut

Not the time for PN to change leader says Mark Anthony Sammut
Apr 12 2022 Share

Newly elected MP Mark Anthony Sammut expressed his thoughts saying that this is not the right time for the PN to change leader and be fragmented. 

Sammut said that the party leader, Bernard Grech, should be allowed to continue despite the electoral defeat.

In the year-and-a-half he has been leader, Grech did important changes and this included the regeneration of the parliamentary group, said Sammut. 

Sammut, a new face elected to parliament under the PN ticket, was speaking during a debate on TVM News Plus’ Xtra. Sammut went on to say that despite the result, the PN should not throw away all that has been achieved or the vision outlined in the electoral programme. 

‘This is not a moment for the party to fragment’ said Sammut. ‘The PN has to be humble enough to see how it can do better and understand better the electorate. There was abuse by the government during the electoral campaign but we cannot justify the result through this… reforms and changes within the PN have to happen but not necessarily in the leadership.’ 

Referring to the ‘abuse’, Sammut said that apart from releasing cheques during the campaign, he claimed that he knew of people who were informed on Election Day by union representatives that they had negotiated a good pay packet. 

‘This is abuse but the PN has to focus on what it can do best and the first priority must be to focus on its internal structures’ he said.
