Maltese former foreign minister George Vella was named the country’s new president on Thursday, taking over from Marie Louise Coleiro Preca who was one of Europe’s few female ceremonial heads of state. Vella, 76, said his presidency would be impartial and just. “I am convinced that whoever needs help should receive it as a right not as charity. We need to be aware that there is material poverty among our people,” he said.
