According to the President of the Malta Chamber, David Xuereb, a strong nation needs to have two elements; a strong government and a strong opposition.

Interviewed by Jes Saliba on Newsbook Hour on 103 Malta’s Heart, David Xuereb said that the present situation within the opposition is creating serious concerns. “To assure equity we need leaders and a system that works of checks and balances” – said Xuereb.

David Xuereb continued explaining that this situation continued throwing off responsibility on the Malta Chamber and on other social partners and stakeholders. The Malta Chamber President also explained how every opposition should be respected, organized, honest and effective.
