The Independent reports on the Caruana Galizia public inquiry, too, and names former Law Faculty Dean Professor Ian Refalo and forensic expert Dr Anthony Abela Medici as the other two commission members.
L-Orizzont says that, before appointing the public inquiry commission, it held talks to ensure that the process would not prejudice the criminal proceedings against three men accused of the carrying out the murder on Daphne Caruana Galizia.
In-Nazzjon quotes PN Leader Adrian Delia who was addressing a mass meeting on the eve of Independence Day on Friday. Delia said that the party will present a vision for better quality of life focusing on the common good.
The Times also follows the address by PN Leader Adrian who called on the government to declare a national climate emergency and to enact a comprehensive strategy to fight the effects of climate change.
The Independent reveals that Environment Minister Jose Herrera will present Cabinet with detailed proposals for land reclamation sites. The Minister said that recommendations which surfaced some months ago were not the complete report.
L-Orizzont speaks to Principal Permanent Secretary Mario Cutajar ahead of the Public Service Week. Cutajar said that, with artificial intelligence, the service is moving in the direction of anticipating the needs of the public before they seek it.
