No privatisation of essential sectors, says PN Leader

PN Leader Simon Busuttil criticised government for its position on privatisation saying that while the PN is pro-privatisation, it was against such a measure in the utilities sector. Dr Busuttil said that the Labour Party’s changing stance on the privatisation of state corporations betrayed its lack of political direction. Dr Busuttil insisted that some sectors are too important to trust to what he described as ‘foreign powers’ in a reference to the fact that the stake in Enemalta is set to be acquired by a Chinese state-owned company. He stressed that as a result, Malta lost control over the majority of its energy supply, pointing out that half will now come – for at least 18 years – from a privately-built station, while Enemalta, which controls the other half, is being partially privatised.

The PN Leader pointed out that, with regards to the Interconnector, Malta would not have to rely on this connection for most of its electricity supply.
