      I wish to congratulate all 4 Labour Elected Candidates, and as a Gozitan Dr Josianne Cutajar for achieving the almost impossible task for a Gozitan to be elected. She did it. For the other two Nationalist Elected Candidates, I wish that they will be much more responsible of dragging Malts’s name through the mud in the European Fora as they had done during the past 5 years. The Maltese & Gozitan General Public have cast their votes indicating the way forward for our MEP’s.
      So, we are hoping for a more constructive future and work by our MEP’s in the European Fora.
