Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Fourteen thematic expert groups were launched on Friday afternoon by Opposition Leader and Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia during a press conference.

The clusters are part of a restructuring plan undertaken by the party. The fourteen thematic clusters stem out of four pillars – socio-economic vision for 2030 which will coordinated by MP Claudio Grech, humane values in a modern society which will be coordinated by Claudette Buttigieg, good governance which will be coordinated by Karol Aquilina and outreach which will coordinated by Roberta Metsola.

The fourteen clusters will be as follows:

  • Social Well Being composed of David Agius, Ivan Bartolo, Graziella Attard Previ, David Casa;
  • Quality of Life composed of Maria Deguara, Paula Mifsud Bonnici, Stephen Spiteri, Robert Cutajar, Mario Galea;
  • Tomorrow’s Economy composed of Robert Arrigo, Hermann Schiavone, John Rapa;
  • Environment composed of David Thake, Kevin Cutajar, Edwin Vassallo, Bernard Grech;
  • Infrastructure and Resources composed of Toni Bezzina, Ryan Callus, Janice Chetcuti;
  • Security composed of Beppe Fenech Adami, Graziella Galea;
  • Justice composed Jason Azzopardi, Joe Giglio;
  • Ecosystem for Gozo composed of Chris Said, Frederick Azzopardi, Alex Borg;
  • Taxation composed of Mario De Marco, Graham Bencini, Kristy Debono;
  • Public Sector composed of Therese Comodini Cachia, Amanda Abela;
  • Advanced Technology and Innovation composed of Ivan J. Bartolo, Gabriel Micallef;

  • National identity in a globalised world composed of Carm Mifsud Bonnici, Peter Agius;
  • Population, integration and migration composed of Karl Gouder, Alessia Psaila Zammit.

Delia explained briefly the role of each cluster and what it shall focus on. After the clusters were launched the Nationalist leader remarked that the Opposition was restructuring itself and its way of doing politics. He stressed that the PN believes that its politics should be human-centric hence this approach was chosen to include as many stakeholders as possible.

PN just ‘planning to make plans,’ PL charges

The party’s announcement was met with a somewhat derisive response from the Labour Party, which said that Delia simply announced that the Opposition “is planning to make plans.”

“With typical negativity for every sector he mentioned, the Opposition Leader forgot to mention one cluster: one which would see the Opposition that he leads – or tries to lead – work in the interest of the people, and not its own political interests.”
