Problem should have been better tackled, PN says in Naxxar mayor’s probe



The issue should have been tackled in a better way, the National Party said on Thursday, following an internal investigation into Nasher’s vote on developments at the Nasher fairgrounds.

in December, PN has asked Naxxar Mayor Anne Marie Muscat Fenech Adami to resign, citing an undeclared conflict of interest. The request came from party secretary Michael Piccinino, after consultation with party leader Bernard Greck.

Muscat Fenech Adami, who represents PN as mayor of the municipality, voted in favor of the mega-development of the former fairgrounds.The mayor has rejected his resignation and the issue has been brought up before Party Discipline and Ethics Committee.

Earlier this week, the former deputy leader Robert Arrigo .

In a statement Thursday, PN said it had reached the conclusion that the issue could have been approached in a better way “to avoid any doubt”. The party said similar situations should be avoided.

The statement also said no evidence had been provided to former top official Ray Vezina, who called for an investigation into comments made by St. Julian’s Mayor Albert Buttigieg. A “fat cat” to silence him.

It was decided that if similar incidents occurred in the future, they should be brought before the party organization and not other forums.
