Posting to Facebook, young Nationalist Party candidate Rebekah Cilia was snapshotted speaking to Labour supporters, just days before the general election takes place.
The politician posted to social media saying that as the election draws nearer, ‘it is important to keep in mind that we are all Maltese brothers and sisters. Our political colours should not divide us’.
The interactions occurred in Rabat last Sunday, with Cilia describing the chat as an amazing moment as she campaigns for the Opposition.
This is exactly the type of politics we want and love to see as it brings people together and decreases the tension and often ugly encounters which election campaigns are unfortunately known to bring about.
The post by Rebekah was met with considerable praise, supporting her decision to take to the streets and talk with political opposition. The young candidate forms part of an attempt by the PN to revitalise the party, bringing in even the youngest political candidate in Maltese history, Eve Borg Bonello.
