Galeas attempt at the Gordian Knot

first_imgIn the coming days, PN grandee Louis Galea will be meeting the members of the local committees of the Partit Nazzjonalista as well as the PN parliamentary group. In his attempt to undo the Gordian Knot which is currently weighing the party down, Galea’s start may be a sign that he landed on his feet, running.His first letter was to the PN grassroots, the Kumitati Sezzjonali, or Local Committees. Between Sunday 7th July and Wednesday 10th July, Galea ‘invited’, a word he himself stressed, the members of the local committees to meeting to discuss ways in which the party can be reformed, and a political vision forged to engender unity. Due recognition was given to the contribution of the committees when Galea, in the letter stressed that, alone, he would not accomplish anything.Besides writing to the PN grassroots, Galea wrote also to the PN parliamentary group, where he frankly expressed his trepidation at the task ahead in trying to resolve the issues which currently plague the Partit Nazzjonalista. In the letter, dated 6th July, Galea said that in spite of this awareness of the size of the task, he felt it his duty to give it a shot for the sake of the party and of the country.Read Also: Is Delia the disease in the party? Louis Galea answersAim: Unity in harmonious diversityUnderlining that his contribution would be to the whole party, possibly a veiled comment at the jibes that Galea had been brought on to make beleaguered PN leader Adrian Delia look credible, Galea immediately set his record straight. “In my work, I shall ensure that I will be impartial, independent and fair with everyone” wrote Galea. More importantly, he set the tone which, in effect has been the leit motif of the Partit Nazzjonalista since the late 1970’s: “The concept of unity I believe in is one rooted in diversity, but a harmonious diversity born out of dialogue” stated Galea.Read Also: Watch: Party members will decide – Adrian DeliaGoodwill vs a complex knotGalea said that he was aware of the differences which exist in the party on different issues as well as on different levels, which he likened to a ball of string: “ the knot is complex but the ends do exist” would be a loose translation of Galea’s phrase. He said that to understand and address these complexities, the basic element needs to be that of good will tempered with realistic objectivity which, finally, should result in a credible and electable party.Read Also: Dr Louis Galea appointed as AŻAD President SharePrint WhatsAppcenter_img <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more
