Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia remarked that a reformed and renewed party will be the catalyst for change in the coming years. Partit Nazzjonalista’s has entered in its second phase of reforms, after it was earlier announced that veteran politician Louis Galea will finish his report ahead of scheduled.

Speaking during an interview on Partit Nazzjonalista’s radio station, Delia explained that on Thursday, the executive committee had approved a motion which would see the elections planned for November be held once amendments to the party statute are approved. The elections will be held in March 2020.

Delia remarked that he is satisfied that the reform has generated so much interest. He praised the efforts of all those involved, as he invited everyone to engage in the dialogue sessions planned for the coming weeks at each level within the party’s structures.

“Renewing the party means that PN would be of greater service to the people of Malta and Gozo,” Delia added.

Motion on a Standing Committee for Gozo Affairs

Describing the party as proactive, Delia referred to a motion put forward by Opposition MPs Chris Said, Marthese Portelli, Frederick Azzopardi and Kevin Cutajar, in which they proposed that a Standing Committee for Gozo Affairs focusing exclusively on Gozitan issues should be set up.

Delia listed a number of challenges that the sister island faces due to its double insularity.

The Opposition Leader also spoke about the recently approved controversial permit in Qala which will see ruins turn into a villa. Delia said that it is clear that the development will bring about further environmental destruction. He highlighted that various entities had voiced their concerns on the permit, including Nationalist MPs from Gozo, Qala local council, environmentalists, non-governmental organisations among others.
