PN parliamentary group meets, appoints representatives on party's national executive
The Nationalist Party’s parliamentary group met this afternoon and elected the 13 representatives to its national executive.
David Agius was reappointed whip and parliamentary group secretary.
The 13 MPs to represent the group on the executive are: Mr Agius, Frederick Azzopardi, Jason Azzopardi, Claudette Buttigieg, Ryan Callus, Joseph Cassar, Robert Cutajar, Giovanna Debono, Beppe Fenech Adami, Mario Galea, Michael Gonzi, Chris Said and Francis Zammit Dimech.
Questioned after the meeting, Opposition leader Lawrence Gonzi said the meeting did not discuss the electoral result or which districts those who had been elected from two would give up as this was something that would be discussed in a party executive meeting.
Asked whether the group discussed the possibility of commissioning a report on the PN’s electoral defeat, Dr Gonzi said this was idea but it was also a discussion that had to be held at national executive level.
