Fenech’s campaign rolls on

PN Councillors from localities in the 9th and 10th District are being invited on Wednesday at 7.30pm for a reception and a discussion with Finance Minister Tonio Fenech who is contesting the election for the post of deputy leadership in the PN.

This will be the fifth meeting held by Fenech for councillors during which Fenech has received the open support and endorsement from ministers, MPs and other candidates. The meetings so far have been held for 1st and 8th district, the 2nd and 3rd district and 4th and 5th district.

The election for the post will take place in nine days’ time. MEP Simon Busuttil is the only other contender. Earlier on this year Busuttil was given a special assignment by Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi to win back disgruntled voters and this was interpreted as another push to anoint Busuttil as Gonzi’s successor as PN leader. Since then Gonzi has been distancing himself from what is going on in the deputy leadership contest just in case Busuttil is turned down by PN councilors for deputy leader.

Fenech or Busuttil will have to obtain two-thirds of the PN's general councillors' votes to be elected, and a second election will have to be held on 2 December if the quota is not reached.
