Despite resisting reforms the Government had to implement Venice Commission requested changes – Adrian Delia
Opposition leader Adrian Delia said that despite its resistance on reforms, the Government had to implement the changes requested by the Venice Commission.
During a speech at a political activity in Żurrieq this evening, the Nationalist leader stated that the changes were implemented following strong pressure from the Opposition, adding that the changes implemented according to the request of the Venice Commission are similar to the reforms that the Nationalist Party had requested for months for the Government to implement.
Dr Delia added that the Opposition has been criticising for long the double role of the Attorney General who, he said, was creating a conflict of interest as while acting as the Government’s Attorney, at the same time he has to decide whether to take action against Government members.
The Nationalist leader said that concrete measures are needed for the strengthening of democracy and changes to ensure the institutions’ independence to serve citizens. He stated that the Government took hold of the institutions and is working without a plan on various sectors, such as health, transport, infrastructure and the environment.
