Statement by Repubblika:

Forty people from all walks of life in Malta yesterday night formally set up ‘Repubblika’, a non-governmental organisation that wants to promote democracy and the rule of law in Malta.

At yesterday’s Floriana meeting, Repubblika’s founding members approved the organisation’s statute that is now published on Repubblika’s electronic page at

Members approved the election of the first executive committee for Repubblika that will be chaired by President Marion Pace Asciaq. Dr Robert Aquilina is Secretary General and Paula Fleri-Soler is Treasurer.

Repubblika has been set up to promote civil rights, democratic life, the rule of law, free speech, personal freedoms, social inclusion, environmental conservation, economic sustainability and equality of access, by means of active participation in the national discourse and related educational, social and charitable initiatives.

Repubblika will now apply for registration with the Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations and in the Register for Legal Persons as required at law.
