Civil society NGO Repubblika has said it endorses a graffiti-sprayed message which denounced incoming Prime Minister Robert Abela as “dogshit on the path”.

Graffiti reading ‘Robert Abela is a bump in the road. Dogs*** on the path. Our fight goes on’ was sprayed on a wall in Balzan moments after Abela was confirmed as the new Prime Minister on Saturday night.

“Our sentiments entirely. We approve this message,” said Repubblika, a civil society NGO which has organised several protests demanding justice for the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia and which last weekend launched a detailed manifesto outlining their vision for a new Republic.

The graffiti proved controversial, with Labour activist Cyrus Engerer urging people to give Abela a chance before rushing to condemn him.

“I have no problem saying that [Abela] wasn’t my choice [as leader], but I can never agree with this attitude from people whose only goal is to take power for themselves,” he said. “Nationalists don’t change and don’t even give you a chance. How can you judge him in this manner before he has even been sworn in and before he has started implementing his vision? I understand that not everyone might be convinced by the new PL leader but he must at least be given a chance to convince people through his actions.”
