Parliament to debate Franco Debono's motion tomorrow
A motion for reforms in the sectors of justice and home affairs, proposed by Nationalist MP Franco Debono last November, is to start being debated in parliament tomorrow.
The debate will be opened tomorrow at 7.30 p.m. by Dr Debono and is expected to continue on Wednesday.
The House also agreed that the opposition's motion calling for the resignation of Richard Cachia Caruana, Malta's envoy to the EU, will be debated in plenary sitting on Monday evening.
Mr Cachia Caruana will face further questioning by MPs tomorrow during a sitting of the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Dr Debono last week voted with the Opposition in a motion of no confidence in Home Affairs Miister Carm Mifsud Bonnici but then immediately said he would not vote against the government in the motion about Mr Cachia Caruana.
During the debate on the no confidence motion against Dr Mifsud Bonnici he repeatedly complained that his motion, presented a month before the opposition's, had not been brought up for debate.
Former minister Francis Zammit Dimech subsequently commented that events last week may have been different had Dr Debono's motion been debated first.
