Former AD leader Arnold Cassola has quit the party in the wake of a feud over the party’s stand on abortion.
It is clear, he said in a letter to the party, that there are differences “between me and the executive committee” on the issue.
“I am totally against abortion unless the mother’s life is in jeopardy. Therefore it would be better for AD to be free to take decisions it deems fit without the hindrance of my minority stand”.
“With sadness, I am hereby resigning from Alternattiva Demokratika. After 30 great years, my adventure with AD – which will remain in my heart – finishes here. From today onwards I will walk my political life on my own.”
