Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Na­tion­al­ist Party has re­it­er­ated its po­si­tion that freema­sons – for­mer or cur­rent – can­not be mem­bers of the party and as such, lawyer Arthur Az­zopardi is not el­i­gi­ble to vote in the elec­tion for party leader.

Az­zopardi had ad­mit­ted to hav­ing been a freema­son and was told he could no longer vote. In a let­ter he sent to the party, he said that he had been de­nied a fair hear­ing.

In a let­ter in re­ply, care­taker sec­re­tary gen­eral Rosette Thake said that the PN statute pro­hib­ited its mem­bers to be part of se­cret so­ci­eties.
