Marlene Farrugia says she remains at the people's service
Labour MP Marlene Farrugia, who last week stepped down from her role as aide to her husband Health Minister Godfrey Farrugia, said in parliament this evening that she had left her clinic as she understood that she had been asked to serve in the health ministry. But she had then returned to her clinic after having possibly misunderstood.
However she wanted to thank all those who had confidence in her and she would continue to be of service to all the people. This was especially important to her because she had worked in both political parties. Thus, the consensus over the Budget was a dream come true for her.
Speaking during the Budget debate, Dr Farrugia said the biggest consideration of the parliament should be job creation and sustaining the economy.
She also stressed the need for reduced bureaucracy and for an education system that enabled people to think outside the box.
Concluding, she augured that all politicians would bring the people together for the benefit of the country. Loyalty to the people came before partisan interests, she said.
