An emergency KPS meeting took place on Wednesday regarding the current political climate in which various student organisations expressed their opinion on the matter.

The meeting turned into a heated debate with some organisations disagreeing with the majority, who voted in favour of Joseph Muscat’s resignation. The organisations which voted in favour of the resolution include JEF Malta, MHSA, ASCS, Wolves RFC, ELSA Malta, SACES, USPA, SHS, MMSA, UESA, UBG, SDM, DESA, MIRSA, JCA, ESA, IAESTE, Insite, SCubed, ESO, GUG, The Third Eye, ALLT, TDM 2000 Malta, SPS and MAKE.

KSU have also expressed their opinion on the matter, which forms part of the majority. A statement was also released by them stating that they will be attending the protests in Valletta tonight at 6pm. They have encouraged fellow students to take a stand and join them during tonight’s protests stating that “Our country’s reputation and serenity is at stake”.

During tonight’s meeting, some organisations stated their opinions about the situation. JEF proclaimed that political parties should have no place in the call for justice and should keep out of the way.

Organisations were asked if they wanted to discuss any issues regarding the proposed resolution to which multiple responses were recorded. MMSA were recorded saying that politicians involved should carry their political responsibility and take on their duty to safeguard what is going on in society at large. Betapsi voiced the fact that they are against the proposed resolution, saying that they do not see someone capable enough to replace the prime minister although they might reconsider when more evidence comes to light.

It was a heated discussion. Students from different organisations voiced their opinions, agreeing with the fact that political involvement from students has never been as important as it currently is.
