17 Jul Discipline, candidates and the next leadership race
This morning in Valletta people expressed with me their concern about how the PN has been led in the past four years.
Most were of the opinion that what is happening inside the PN right now has nothing to do with discipline or with new candidates, but rather with one faction’s efforts to get hold of the party in view of the next leadership race, possibly immediately after the elections, if the party loses heavily at the polls, considering the negative polls.
Who knows this reasoning may be true after all?
People asked me : are Austin Gatt and Beppe Fenech Adami, who once had a legal office together trying to gain control of the party in view of the next leadership race? does Eddie Fenech Adami think he gave the PN on lease to Lawrence Gonzi and now is the time for his family to take it back on termination of the lease?
Food for thought !
