Edward Zammit Lewis’s nomination for the post of Judge of the European Union Court is an undue prize for one of the pillars of Joseph Muscat’s corrupt edifice.

Edward Zammit Lewis was caught when he was a minister eating from Yorgen Fenech’s hand. The entire country has seen messages by Zammit Lewis sucking up to Yorgen Fenech. He was doing this when the entire country knew that Yorgen Fenech bribed ministers for government contracts and anyone not looking away from the facts had every reason to suspect that in order to cover up what he was doing, Fenech allegedly ordered the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Edward Zammit Lewis defended the institutionalised corruption of Joseph Muscat’s government and called it “Muscatonomics” as if theft and bribery were some admirable innovation.

Edward Zammit Lewis was one of the government ministers who was found politically responsible in a public inquiry into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Edward Zammit Lewis is not presentable for public life and instead of this “cushy job” award he should continue to be excluded from public life, just as he has already been excluded by his electors.

When presenting such a nomination, Robert Abela takes over the political faults of Edward Zammit Lewis, and renews the shame brought on our country by Joseph Muscat’s ministers.
