Former Labour ministers Daniel Micallef and Vincent Moran this morning endorsed Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca in the MLP leadership contest.
Both spoke at a breakfast meeting hosted by Ms Coleiro Preca for delegates and members of the MLP’s Veterans’ Section.
Dr Micallef, a former Speaker and Minister for Education and the Environment, praised Notary Coleiro Preca for her principles, particularly her honesty, but also for her role as a mother.
Dr Moran, a longer serving Minister of Health, recalled MsColeiro Preca’s work as general secretary of the Labour Party in what, he said, were difficult times. Dr Moran urged party delegates to vote wisely at the leadership election and to heed the lessons of the past.
Ms Coleiro Preca praised the Labour veterans fr their service to the party, as well as the service they continue to give the country, particularly in voluntary organisations, an area, she said, which was close to her heart.
She also underscored the need for today’s young to be told of the Labour Party’s role in the social, economic and political development of Malta, fearing that what the young knew of the past of the MLP was what they were spoon-fed by the PN.
