Gonzi resisting pressure to call election in 2012

Between 5.00pm and 9.00pm today (Thursday 26 July 2012) the PN will be holding four meetings at Dar Centrali with the sectional committees of Balzan, Mosta, Pieta` and Naxxar to discuss the role of the PN activists in the electoral process, proposals for the electoral programme, Maltese who live outside Malta and have the right to vote and the Independence activities.

The PN leadership is split on when to call the election. Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi wants and election in 2013 and is determined to hang on till the last minute. He is supported by Finance Minister Tonio Fenech and Resources Minister George Pullicino even though both are organizing activities in their districts as if an election is just round the corner. Most of the PN’s strategy team want and election in 2012 as they are worried that that since January support for the party has fallen.

Pressure is mounting on Gonzi to call an election for this year but so far he is not giving in but the PN’s party machine is in full electoral mode.

By yesterday PN sectional committees had to hand in the list of those activists who will be accompanying police in the distribution of the voting documents. Sectional committees have also been told to give a list of activists who want to be involved in the sealing of voting boxes after polling booths close in the coming election.

The meetings with the 50 sectional committees started on Tuesday. Every meeting lasts an hour and presidents and secretaries have been told to urge all members to attend.

As from today meetings will be held every day during the week with four sectional committees every day till the end of August, with a break only between 3 and 19 August. The last meetings will be held on Monday 27 August with Xghajra at 7.00pm and Imtarfa at 8.00pm.

He knows he is finished as P.M. He knows he is finished as leader of the PN- so he hangs on for as long as possible JUST to draw his salaries. Self interest comes first, f--k the country.
And look who is supporters are, two of the biggest incompetents in the whole government

In my opinion, GonziPN lives to fall another day. I believe if they were to hold a survey, people would vote to have an election right now. It is getting very tiring now ..
