Muscat: This is the dawn of change

Addressing thousands of supporters at Floriana Granaries late Sunday afternoon, newly elected Prime Minister Dr Joseph Muscat said that the day of change had just dawned upon Malta.

PM Muscat pledged that a new government would be true to its promise of a movement for all Maltese and Gozitans. He said that this was not a day in which Malta will take down a blue flag and replace it with a red one, but that the blue flag will only be replaced by a red and white flag.

Dr Muscat said that the election outcome was the clearest message the people had given since Independence. “This burdens us with a greater responsibility, a responsibility which we are ready to accept.”

The PM added that his party was humbled by the outcome, and that he was aware that the faith the Maltese people had shown in him was simply borrowed. They had shown faith because they wanted a government for all, and not only for half the population.

In an appeal to Labour supporters, Dr Muscat asked them to “give the hand of friendship” to everyone, even those who might not have shown their support up to this point.

“This week we will start working as a government, and next Friday evening we will gather here once again to let the world know that Malta belongs to us all”, PM Muscat said amid thunderous applause.

Dear Joseph and Micelle you are worthy of this honour, you are GOD sent, and HIS chosen one, to give new hope to ALL the people of Malta and Gozo. I always prayed that GOD would send us a new 'king David', in you I see my prayers answered.

Malta taghna experiment can fail. Let`s us remember the Alfred Sant era and learn from those mistakes, even before we start the roadmap towards a vision of a financially safe, united and secure Malta.

Il-vot tal-poplu Malti llum kellu d-dimensjoni ta' rivoluzzjoni. Dan ma kienx vot ta' xi vendetta personali, izda wera bic-car li t-tbatija u d-dwejjaq kien massicc. Il-poplu sab lil min hu lest li jisimghu u lil min hu sensittiv ghat-tbatija tieghu. Il-poplu sab lil min qed joffri idu biex jghinu jqum fuq saqajh. Il-poplu sab it-tama u ra ragg ta' dawl, f'moviment inklussiv mimli hegga. Grazzi ghaziz Prim Ministru u grazzi lill-Maltin u Ghawdxin. Illum jien vera nhossni kburija li jien Maltija. Illum Malta kisbet it-tieni helsien.

Thank you dear Joseph for giving us our country back. All those of us who have been called persona non grata for resisting corruption, those who have been threatened and their lives work sabotaged - WE THANK YOU for giving us a new start.

Sebah jum gdid jum kollu dija
Li tixghel il-qlub f’din l-art Maltija
U l-poplu fehem sew, ma baqax ghama
Imtlew il-qlub, faru bit-tama.

Il-ghajta dwiet mat-toroq kollha
U ghanja wahda harget mill-folla:
“Malta Taghna Lkoll” hija kantat,
“Il-mexxej taghna Joseph Muscat!”
