AD congratulates PPE for following Greens’ call for Kessler resignation
Alternattiva Demokratika congratulates the People's Party of Europe( PPE) for following the European Greens' and Alternattiva Demokratika's call for Giovanni Kessler's resignation.
Prof. Arnold Cassola, AD spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, said: "It is heartening to see that the foreign MEPs forming part of the PPE group are finally seeing the light on the Dalligate affair and following the Green Group in the EP and Alternattiva Demokratika's call for Kessler's resignation in the wholly mismanaged affair regarding John Dalli, which has smeared Malta's name the world over.In this context, it is shameful that for the past 8 months not one of the nine Maltese MEPs rotating in the European Parliament, including now Deputy Prime Minister Grech, now Finance Minister Scicluna and now Leader of the Opposition Busuttil, opened their mouth to defend Malta's honour and to support our call for clarity in the Dalli case.
We are now happy that, despite the silence of the Maltese MEPs, the PPE has taken this step. We now look forward for a concerted effort by all, including PPE and Socialists, to support the Green call for Barroso to answer in parliament for his irregular behaviour".
