Busuttil says people showing they want Muscat out

Foreign media 'cannot believe what is happening in Malta'


Nationalist Party leader Simon Busuttil this evening said that as he continued meeting people on the streets during this campaign, he became more convinced that the people wanted Prime Minister Joseph Muscat out.

“I met a Labourite this morning outside court who grabbed me by the hand and told me that he had always voted for the Labour Party but seeing the way things had deteriorated in recent years, he would be voting for the PN this time round,” Dr Busuttil said, addressing supporters in Gozo.

This was proof that people have had enough of the Labour Party, the party leader went on, a sentiment that was now felt by more people as fresh scandals continued to make headlines.

Giving a run-down of proposals on Gozo announced last week, Dr Busuttil said that these served as proof that the PN was well-prepared for the election.

The PN leader said that while others criticised the party, saying that the party was not prepared to take on an election, the proposals spoke for themselves.

“Let’s not let fear take over. I am convinced that even anyone who had it good under Dr Muscat deep down knows that the country’s future is in jeopardy. This is evident for all and the more things develop, the more this becomes true,” Dr Busuttil said.

Foreign media, he went on, could not believe what was happening in Malta and he had even met foreign journalists who told him that country’s scandals could make a “good sci-fi film”.

Malta’s real Prime Minister, he insisted, was in fact Keith Schembri and not Dr Muscat and the chief of staff was in reality the true “mastermind”.

“Those voting on June 3 must keep in mind that when casting their vote for the Labour Party, they would be actually voting for Keith Schembri. Let’s make this very clear,” Dr Busuttil went on.
