Labour braces itself for tremors

Labour yesterday launched the much-awaited review of the party’s statute and internal structures with the stated aim of maintaining the pledge made by Labour leader Joseph Muscat upon his election of making Labour undergo “an earthquake”.
In the past weeks, Muscat had already declared that that the party’s General Conference will be meeting later this year to approve important changes to the party’s statute and structures to make Labour “the most dynamic political organization in the country”.
Yesterday, the party said it was inviting all its members as well as the general public to give its comments, ideas, proposals and opinions as to how the party’s statute and internal structures should be strengthened.
Comments can be sent by e-mail on or by post at party headquarters.
A copy of the party’s statute can be downloaded from the Labour Party’s website at The party said that this was the first time that the party’s statute was being disseminated for public consumption on its website.
Among the changes mentioned by Muscat as part of his political earthquake was the appointment of a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the party, itself a recommendation made in the 2003 electoral defeat report and shelved since.
On Wednesday, Nationalist daily “In-Nazzjon” identified the new CEO as 30-year-old James Piscopo, one of Muscat’s core campaign team during the leadership race.
Piscopo, who currently works at national airline Air Malta, would take up his position in the next couple of months, however he would not confirm or deny his appointment when faced by the press.
The leak to the rival party’s press surprised many insiders, as only a few people were privy to this information, including party Secretary-General Jason Micallef.
