Story of rift between PM and President in Times is not true says PM’s office

Castille, Valletta. Seat of Prime Minister

The Office of the Prime Minister refers to a story in the Times of Malta with the title “President snubbed by Abela over abortion law amendment.”

The story in the Times of Malta is based on incorrect information.

The Prime Minister holds regular and scheduled meetings with the President of the Republic.

This very week was the turn of one of these meetings.

The meeting actually took place as scheduled on Wednesday at two o’clock in the afternoon, in the Palace of Sant’Anton.



The Office of the President confirms the statement of the Office of the Prime Minister that last Wednesday, 30th November, the Prime Minister and the President of Malta held the meeting they hold on a regular basis according to constitutional duties.
