As explained in my previous posts, the Forum Żgħażagħ Laburisti (the Labour Party’s youth wing) has been turned into a job centre and this explains why Forum Żgħażagħ Laburisti is the only and last standing ally of Robert Abela in the Labour Party. They are basically being paid with government jobs and public contracts in exchange for their loyalty. This arrangement has been going on ever since Robert Abela initiated his leadership campaign for the Labour Party where he bought the support of the youth wing in exchange for promises of government jobs. Back then the Labour Youth Wing had no ideological, political, or moral position on Malta’s biggest political crisis in its history.
This is a list of their jobs.
Georvin is the FŻL President and works as a policy consultant in the Strategic and Priorities Unit – Parliamentary Secretariat for Social Dialogue falling under the remit of the Office of the Prime Minister. This section is basically the MCESD which is chaired by Robert Abela’s friend and construction industry frontman David Xuereb. Previously, he was the Head of Secretariat of Rosianne Cutajar when she was Parliamentary Secretary for Equality.
Martina Grech is FŻL’s international officer and also a local councilor for Qormi. Currently, she works as an assistant manager at the Implementation Directorate of the Office of the Prime Minister. Previously, she was Head of Communications for Alicia Bugeja Said (Parliamentary Secretary for Fisheries, Aquaculture and Animal Welfare) but she was also a Communications Coordinator for Anton Refalo (Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and Animal Rights). She was a producer for ONE’s TV programme called Stat ta’ Fatt. Her father Michael Grech is often seen on ONE selling heaters and other domestic appliances.
Christian Cauchi is an FŻL executive and works as a Communications Coordinator for Clifton Grima (Minister for Education).
Maria Ellul is FŻL’s general-secretary and she is employed as a manager at the Human Rights Directorate in the Ministry of Home Affairs. She has been actively campaigning for Robert Abela ever since he placed his leadership bid.
Mikela Abela is FL’s deputy secretary-general and she works as a Communications Officer for Miriam Dalli (Minister for Energy).
Maxilin Pisani is an FŻL executive member and works for Miriam Dalli as a Secretariat Officer.
Mario Fenech is an FŻL executive committee member and doubles as a propagandist on ONE and an administrator at the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority.
Natalia Muscat is an FŻL executive member and works as a legal officer for the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority. Natalia Muscat has been a loyal servant to Robert Abela for a long time as she worked as an intern for Robert Abela’s private law firm when she did her legal studies at the University of Malta. She is also a Labour Party delegate by default as a secretary to the local party committee of Saint Paul’s Bay. She used to canvass for Michael Farrugia (Joseph Msucat’s ally) before canvassing for Clayton Bartolo (Minister for Tourism) when the MCCA was still under his remit and that is why she eventually got her job there. Her partner is Matthew Chetcuti who was a previous FŻL official and also its vice-president. Matthew Chetcuti also works at the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority as a Senior Administrative Officer but has other jobs and posts too. Matthew Chetcuti is the board secretary for the Inwadar Park Management Board and he is also on the board of Transport Malta. Both Matthew Chetcuti and Natalia Muscat have campaigned for Robert Abela ever since he placed his leadership bid, specifically by calling up Labour Party members and asking to vote for him.
With thanks to my reader below. Pearl Agius is an official member of the FŻL and has a very rich history of rent-seeking. She is a ONE propagandist, a canvasser to Miriam Dalli and has been appointed as a lawyer for Waste Serve before she even got her warrant.
