Leave the hamlets be says Opposition to Government

The Speaker of the House of Representatives has been presented with a Private Members’ motion tabled by the Opposition to safeguard the hamlets in the local council elections. hamlets are homogeneous areas within a locality which were given the right to a representative council  but which the current law, as amended, has removed. The Partit Nazzjonalista, as Opposition is seeking to repeal that part of the law to retain the right of these hamlets, such as Bubaqra, Paceville and Burmarrad, to keep a representative council.
