Partit Laburista (PL) presented their electoral manifest for the imminent Local Council elections. Prime Minister and PL leader Joseph Muscat said that the manifesto was possible thanks to continuous consultation with the localities via PL structures. He explained that both the general and the locality specific manifests focus on the quality of life, quality family time, quality of sites, quality of the infrastructure and the quality of cleanliness in their locality.

The Prime Minister also said that Local Councils should be involved in the plastic bottles refund scheme which will start by the end of the year. He also said that the Local Councils should give preference to electric cars and set up more charging points around their locality.

The Environment holds an important place in the PL’s agenda for Local Councils, as well as alternative transport, modern infrastructure, the social dimension and cultural life.

Special measures relating to pets have also been mentioned. These include dog parks and cat cafes which will be placed in areas that will not inconvenience the local residents.
