Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia has stated that a Nationalist Government will ensure that every person in Malta and Gozo will have a roof over their heads. During a political activity in Imqabba, Dr Delia said that the Nationalist Party is already working to guarantee everyone a decent place to live. Dr Delia added that Government’s policy to bring foreign workers to Malta is increasing the country’s poverty problem.
The Nationalist leader declared that from the Opposition, the PN is working for everyone to have a roof over their heads, and wants to guarantee a place to live for everyone. Dr Delia added that, as opposed to the Prime Minister, he first speaks about people’s rights, and then speaks about robots.
Dr Delia declared that Government has a clear plan to stoke fires, and is ‘burning’ the poor. This, he added, is a Socialist Government which is anything but Socialist, a Government which at the best of times has increased poverty in the biggest way it has ever been increased. Dr Delia further stated that although Government says the economy is growing, this does not mean the people have more money in their pockets. Regarding rentals, the Nationalist leader stated that these are increasing so much that even qualified foreigners are leaving Malta.
Dr Delia declared that the report by Transparency International and Global Witness shows that Malta is attracting corruption and money laundering. The PN leader also referred to a report by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, OECD, which included Malta on the black list because of passport sales. Dr Delia said that in regard to financial services the country should not be on the grey list, let alone on the black list. Delia aded that those in financial services are saying that the sector is suffering great damage because of corruption. The Nationalist Party, the speaker added, does not enjoy hearing these things and works to defend these jobs, as it wants a caring society.
The Nationalist leader added that on the anniversary of the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia, the Opposition presented a motion to find out whether the murder could have been avoided. The Opposition, he added, had requested a discussion in Parliament on Thursday, but Government decreed there was no urgency. Dr Delia added that this was of concern to Daphne Caruana Galizia’s family and is having repercussions on Malta. Dr Delia reiterated that this case should not be put aside or forgotten, and Government has an obligation to solve it.
Referring to education, Dr Delia said Government had not only failed to build one school per year as a Nationalist Government had done, but had also reduced funds for education. Dr Delia promised that a Nationalist Government would increase this expenditure on a yearly basis. The speaker added that the Nationalist Party believed in blockchain, artificial intelligence and robotics, but before all this it believed in teachers, students and Maltese and Gozitan youths.
