It has become crystal clear that Delia is not the right man for the job. He is incapable of leading a strong Opposition, incapable of being able to hold the government to account. Why? Because he himself has been at the centre of a number of allegations, among other reasons. He has lost two votes of confidence in as many weeks. The Parliamentary Group wants him out, and even tried to oust him from his role as Opposition.

On two occasions, he felt compelled to address the nation in the wake of happenings that had rocked this country of ours. The first time was last December, when the arrest of Yorgen Fenech in connection with the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia was followed by the resignation of Joseph Muscat after his office was linked with the crime.
