“Surplus to be shared with population” – PM

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat is surprised at how the Opposition is also trying to politicize the fire at Magħtab especially when they did not accept the invite to contribute to the waste and waste to energy issues.

Muscat also explained how a couple of days before the incident, the Government had announced the distribution of a waste container that allows for a more streamlined of waste separation process. He also referred to a future refund-upon-return plastic bottle initiative.

Joseph Muscat also touched on the “evolving” immigration issue particularly the events that are unfolding in Libya which is not being circulated by any media.

He also illustrated how the national deficit is decreasing with the surplus being shared with the general population with the aim of decreasing the number of individuals relying on social benefits by 43%.
