Malta Today: The new Nationalist | Charlo Bonnici
10 June 2012 - 10:12 Jurgen Balzan

Nationalist MP Charlo Bonnici not only agrees with the bill on party financing drafted by Franco Debono but insists that controversial laws such as IVF and civil partnerships should be pushed through by the government.

Nationalist MP Charlo Bonnici is not one to mince his words. In the past he has publically questioned whether it was acceptable in this day and age for political parties to own television stations, supported calls to amend censure laws in Malta, opposed the Ghadira road project and last year attended an anti-Gaddafi march before Government took a clear stand on the Libyan situation.

While Bonnici played a central role in standing up for Carm Mifsud Bonnici during the Parliamentary debate on Labour's motion calling for the former minister's resignation, he aligns himself to the party's liberal and reformist faction by backing legislation regulating party financing,  in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and civil partnerships.  

As the government comes out from a busy week in which it lost one of its ministers and won a vote of confidence, Charlo Bonnici refuses to get caught up in the Franco Debono whirlwind and looks ahead at the coming months with a cautious sense of optimism.
