The ruling was requested by Nationalist Deputy Leader David Agius on Monday, after government refused to place the Bill on parliament's agenda. "Unless there is a recommendation by the Presi- dent, the House will not discuss a Bill, or any leg- islative amendment that requires additional pub- lic funds to be spent," Farrugia ruled on Tuesday. The PN Bill includes a proposal for a special inquiring magistrate tasked to fight corruption, new crimes targeting mafia-style organisations and unjustified wealth, and rules for interim gov- ernments during electoral campaigns. Farrugia said that the proposal to create the new post of anti-corruption inquiring magistrate would necessitate funds to set up the office and provide the necessary resources as indicated in the Opposition's proposal. The agenda in parliament is presented by the government. Government Whip Glenn Bedingfield had dis- missed the Opposition's request for the Bill to be put on parliament's agenda, insisting the Opposi- tion could use the time allotted to it on Thursday when it can present a private member's motion. Speaker rules that PN's anti-corruption Bill needs president's ascent to be discussed in parliament
