PN leader unlikely to be an outsider
Very few candidates are expected to contest the PN leadership, with analysts saying it is unlikely that anyone outside the parliamentary group will seek the job.
Simon Busuttil and Mario de Marco are seen likely to contest though neither has given any indication. Beppe Fenech Adami is also being encouraged to throw his hat into the ring. He said he would do what’s in the best interest of the party
“Dr Busuttil has proved himself on the international stage and stuck his neck out in the moment of need. Dr de Marco has been an excellent performer in his field,” said one senior PN official.
Others mentioned for the deputy’s role are Joe Cassar and Jason Azzopardi. Chris Said is eying the general secretary’s role.
Lawyer Ann Fenech ruled herself out on Friday.
