Repubblika notes the vote in Parliament yesterday evening regarding reforms in Malta’s judicial and institutional infrastructure, which the organisation fought so fiercely to achieve.

We also note the efforts of political parties to attribute the merit of these reforms to themselves.

The fact is that these reforms happened despite the government’s efforts and not thanks to them. Besides, it was necessary for the reforms to take place, due to the abuses committed by the Government itself. The government has resisted these reforms for years and Repubblika was actually forced to take the case to court for the Government to finally react.

Repubblika will be examining closely the final act that has been approved when this is published, and afterwards will state its position with regard to the new reforms.
