Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Those who signed the restatement agreement with Steward Healthcare made sure that the privatisation agreement of the three public hospitals could not be terminated. This was stated by the Nationalist Party during a press conference on Wednesday.

Deputy Leader David Agius said that prior to securing the deal with Steward Healthcare, Labour government under the leadership of Joseph Muscat was intended to fail.

The press conference was also addressed by PN MPs Chris Said and Mario De Marco.

They said that on Thursday, Labour MPs have the chance to defend the interest of the people or take the side of Steward Healthcare deal. Tomorrow Parliament will discuss the parliamentary motion concerning the controversial hospital concession agreement.

Tomorrow the government has the chance to condemn this deal and to revoke the concession agreement and the restatement agreement, said the three MPs.

On Tuesday, during a press conference, the PN leader Adrian Delia said that the government must publish all agreements signed to transfer 3 public hospitals into the hands of a private company.

Delia also explained that Steward Healthcare could end up being paid €100 million for the termination of the concession agreement which confirms that the deal went against the national interest.
