Former deputy leader of the Nationalist Party, Robert Arrigo, gave a damning speech in July 2022, which mentions him being ‘deeply hurt .’The speech was removed in Saturday’s general council from the party’s on-demand online media service. According to Arrigo, this kind of treatment shows that the party is united, as the P.N. leader Bernard Grech claims. In the speech, Arrigo mentioned that he was hurt because he was unaware of why he was sidelined. He was barred from participating in many of the party’s campaign events. NET Television’s On Demand service divided Saturday’s broadcast into two, which left out Arrigo’s speech. The P.N. media blames the technical glitch to be the cause of the removal.
