Update 3 - Anglu Farrugia to represent PL at parliamentary conference
Mugliett to represent the PN
Former PL deputy leader Anglu Farrugia has accepted to represent the Labour Party in a Commonwealth parliamentary conference that will be held in the Falkland Islands in the coming days.
Party leader Joseph Muscat made the announcement at party headquarters during the party's fund-raising marathon.
The announcement was greeted with loud applause.
Dr Muscat yesterday said he saw a role for Dr Farrugia in the party and the country and the door was always open to him.
Dr Farrugia was forced to resign in December, over comments he made about a member of the judiciary.
Informed sources said Dr Farrugia was first indicated as one of the conference participants in early January. Jesmond Mugliett is to represent the PN.
This will be the last parliamentary duty for the two as they are not seeking re-election.
Mr Mugliett was banned by the PN from seeking re-election under its banner after the way he voted in parliament in the no confidence motion in Richard Cachia Caruana.
Dr Farrugia did not file his nomination after his resignation from the post of deputy leader of the PL.
