A lot of inaccuracies being said about foreigners in Malta – AD

The Alternattiva Demokratika Chairperson, Carmel Cacopardo, said the issue of foreigners in Malta is giving rise to many inaccuracies. Architect Cacopardo said that refugees and immigrants that have been granted humanitarian status should not be placed in the same bracket as foreigners working in Malta.

He said the presence of a larger number of foreigners is impacting the quality of life because of an ever-growing demand for rental property and this is creating greater burdens for those who rely on renting. Regarding Gżira, he said the proposed Manoel Island development will continue to decrease open public space, space that is ongoingly continuing to becoming commercialised.
