Popular web portal www.di-ve.com, has just reported that Dr. Isabelle Gatt has resigned from the Malta Eurosong team with immediate effect. The reason given for this resignation is personal work commitments that Dr. Gatt has. One would like to note that Dr. Gatt has been part of the advisory team since 2008, which coincides with the year PBS took over Malta’s participation at the Eurovision Song Contest.
This resignation is rather a surprise bearing in mind that Thea Garrett shall leave our shores around mid-May to represent Malta in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest which will be held in Oslo on the 25th, 27th and 29th of May. Escflashmalta.com will try to contact the Head of Delegation Joe Dimech to see whether he would like to pass on a statement on the issue, and see whether Dr. Gatt will be replaced in such a crucial stage of the competition.
