Caruana Denies Reports That He's Leaving Politics

by Jason Gorringe, Tax-News.com, London

18 June 2002


Gibraltar's Chief Minister, Peter Caruana has categorically denied suggestions that he is planning to leave politics, announcing that: 'It is my intention to continue in pulic office while the people of Gibraltar consider that I can contribute positively to the promotion and defence of the rights, interests, and aspirations of Gibraltar.'

In a letter to the Panorama news service, which last week reported on a story run by The Business magazine, which claimed that Mr Caruana's appetite for politics had faded as a result of the Anglo-Spanish sovereignty dispute, the Chief Minister described the conclusions reached by the Business magazine as 'erroneous'.

'I have not become tired or disillusioneed with politics, I have no intention of quitting, and I intend to offer myself for re-election at the next general election,' he wrote. However, the Chief Minister did admit that: 'It is true that my job has been quite exhausting during the last year, given the various political and other challenges that Gibraltar has faced.'
