After current Nationalist Party leader Bernard Grech sat down for an interview with Lovin Malta, former chief Adrian Delia took issue in regards to one of the statements Grech made about the state of the Opposition.
Grech was speaking about the ‘state’ of the PN and pointed out how it is in a much better state than it was two and a half years ago, which is the time period Delia spent as the leader of the Opposition.
Grech was even pressed on his statement by the host Tim Diacono, to which Grech sarcastically responded: ‘Do you have any doubt?’
He also asked, rhetorically, whether anyone is going to the President to change the leader of a party, as had happened with Delia.
Following the interview, the former leader hit back at the statement, saying: ‘Whether the party is better or worse is up to the people to decide. But I do not think that it is fair to revel in the fact that you (Grech) were not betrayed.’
‘If anything, this is disrespect to the councillor of the party and their vote. Even though I was betrayed, as Bernard Grech reminds us here, I decided, with responsibility, that the party should still not suffer for it and therefore remained loyal.’
‘However, I can never accept that this is the episode by which the party is measured.’
What do you think?
