PL ready to present electoral programme if election is called
The Labour Party is prepared to present its electoral programme to the people 'at any time' if a general election is called immediately, Toni Abela, PL deputy leader for party affairs said today.
Speaking about the party's annual general conference, due to open this Thursday, Dr Abela said the conference was scheduled before the current crisis and was business as usual for the party.
However matters would change if a general election was called, and the party would call a meeting of its congress to approve its programme and candidates.
The list of party candidates was 'substantial' Dr Toni Abela said. Many candidates had been approved and the process would continue until a general election was called.
He said there had been no contact with the PN since the crisis started.
The general conference continues up to Sunday week. This Sunday, party leader Joseph Muscat will take part in a question-and-answer session with the delegates.
