Labour leader Joseph Muscat said this evening that Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando’s resignation from the PN meant that Malta now had a hung parliament.
Speaking at a press conference, Dr Muscat said the people did not vote for a coalition government but a PN government, and this government finished today.
Electors don’t ‘vote for a coalition government’, Mister Super One reporter. They vote, full stop. Then whoever can get together the majority of seats governs.
With Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando’s alignment to the government benches after his resignation of the party whip, that is a coalition, yes, and perfectly legitimate.
Joseph Muscat’s haste and impatience in dedicating his full efforts to knocking down this government before its time is really up are quite absurd and unseemly.
He’s like a child under the Christmas tree, straining on 23rd December to be allowed at the heap and tear off the wrapping-paper. Yay!
