TMID Editorial: Abela’s maiden speech – We will hold you to your word

The Malta Independent | Jan 14, 2020 at 8:58 AM
  • By far, the most important declaration that Robert Abela made in his maiden speech as Labour leader and PM elect on Sunday was the promise that mistakes that happened over the last seven years would not be repeated.
  • We also noted that Abela at no point in his speech tried to reach out to the Opposition or Civil Society.
  • We truly hope that, as PM, Abela will practice what he preaches, especially when it comes to not repeating past mistakes.
