Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Nationalist Party (PN) stated that the Labour Government deceived Gozitans regarding the fast ferry project.

In a statement, the party outlined that Minister Ian Borg announced that the project will no longer be enacted. The PN explained the project was meant to be a link between Gozo and Valletta and that it was one of the electoral promises made to the Gozitans.

The PN stated that 7 years later, the Government has not only not fulfilled the promise, but managed to handle it incompetently in such a way that the Courts ended up throwing out the paperwork due to mistakes made during the tendering processes.

The party concluded its statement by asking who will take on responsibility for the time and resources wasted on this project, and why is it that the Labour Government wished to deceive the Gozitans. Furthermore, it said that the Gozitans are asking why it is that Minister for Gozo Clint Camilleri and out Labour deputies for Gozo stood aside to let this happen.
