Nationalist MP Eve Borg Bonello pledges to eventually remove Parliament barriers

May 8 2022 Share

On Saturday, Nationalist MP Eve Borg Bonello took to Facebook to express her disdain at the fact that the Parliament building in Valletta still has barriers in front of it.

The barriers were initially placed in front of Parliament in 2019 due to multiple protests in light of the revelation of government officials’ ties to the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Newsbook.com.mt reported that the barriers were removed early on Saturday due to the official opening of the Parliament’s 14th legislature, but were then put back hours later.

In her post, Borg Bonello stated that the Parliament building belongs to the people and not the politicians, and she will be doing her utmost to see that the barriers are removed as soon as possible so ‘the people have power once again’.

Do you agree that the barriers should be removed?

A post shared by Georgina Rodríguez (@georginagio)

In a recent Instagram post featuring the newborn cradled in a cot revealed that the couple named their baby Bella Esmeralda. She was born on April 18, with the pair also announcing that they had sadly lost their infant son during childbirth.

In a subsequent post, Ronaldo had told the couple’s followers “your support is very important and we all felt the love and respect that you have for our family. Now it’s time to be grateful for the life that we’ve just welcomed into this world.”

Bella looks to become a very popular name in Malta as well and the couple’s decision will only contribute to an increase in such a name around the world. In 2019, ‘Emma’, ‘Mia’ and ‘Valentina’ topped the list of Maltese girl names while ‘Noah’, ‘Luca’ and ‘Liam’ were the most popular names for newborn baby boys.

On Saturday, Maltese parliament members and their families & colleagues took to Valletta to attend a ceremonial mass and swearing in event ahead of the country’s official Parliament opening.

While some were joined by their partners, husbands and wives, other opted to take their mothers, with one of them being Nationalist MP Alex Borg. The popular Gozitan politician told Malta Daily that he chose to take his mother because she was a very important pillar in the formation of his life and was a shoulder to the young politician in every decision he made. Borg said that such a gesture was a great opportunity to recognise his mother’s hard work and give her an opportunity to experience his swearing in.

The MP went on to state that his father had been in politics for a long time, serving as a mayor and even Chief of Staff for Giovanna Debono. “He was loved by everyone because he would help without any distinctions. I am walking in his footsteps and that’s why I believe they compare me a lot to him. I want to continue building on his legacy.”

Kudos to Alex Borg!
