MEP Louis Grech is the only candidate who has submitted a nomination to contest Thursday’s election for deputy leader of the Labour Party.
Labour leader Dr Joseph Muscat had confirmed that former deputy leader Anglu Farrugia has resigned on Thursday.
His resignation came after controversy rose following his speech on Sunday when he revealed the name of a magistrate he accused of political bias.
In his letter, Dr Farrugia told Dr Muscat he felt he should resign and said he did not feel he should contest the next election but would remain an honest and true follower of the party.
Dr Muscat said the PL’s door remained open to Dr Farrugia and if he wanted, he was welcome to contest the next election.
