“This election is also a referendum on abortion” – Delia

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Partit Nazzjonalista (PN) leader Adrian Delia warned that the next election counts also as a referendum on the abortion issue as the Party of European Socialist (PES) are promising European women the choice to abort.

Whilst speaking in Mellieħa, Delia explained how the PN is a member of the European Peoples’ Party (EPP) and how the EEP’s electoral manifesto does not make any reference to abortion. He also read a part of the PES’s electoral manifesto pertaining to the same issue stating that every woman will have the right to decide upon the life of the child in her womb.

He stressed that every seat given to a PL candidate will be a vote in favour of abortion and added that the PL is not saying the truth because “they have something to hide”.

Delia emotionally proclaimed that that this is the Maltese moral standard and that the PN can negotiate on everything but not will negotiate upon life.

Thanks to all Mothers

At the beginning of his speech, Adrian Delia referred to all the mothers and thanked his mother for his upbringing and the morals and values which she instilled in him.

He dismissed reports in the local newspapers that stated that the PN as a party and himself as the party’s leader “dreamt” on making an anti-abortion campaign.

He explained that it was the same government that removed the words mother and father and removed every reference that protect the unborn child from the Maltese laws. He reminded his audience that when the PN asked why this reference was removed the government replied that it was done in order to protect the same women. Delia added that half of those born are female and therefore with such measure the government denied such right to these unborn females.

Delia explained that every elected PN candidate will work with the largest EP group in Europe so that abortion does not become legal in Malta.

Environment and climate change

PN leader Adrian Delia then turned his focus on pollution and said that todays’ decisions might save our future. He also referred to Greta Thunberg the young Swedish activist that has appealed to politicians for better long-term plans on our eco-system.

Delia also mentioned the new ‘forest’ project in Ta’Qali. He said that environmentalists uncovered the truth when they said that part of the project was already set up by the PN in the previous legislation whilst the rest is land used for agricultural purposes.

Delia stressed that the government is only interested in numbers and data and is ignored the daily struggles that the Maltese have to go through such. He mentioned particularly the accommodation problem and how it is impacting negatively young people who cannot afford to buy a place for their own.

Adrian Delia praised the work that the current PN MEPs do where they “sacrifice time from their family, and have the will and the courage too go to the Ep and instead of representing the government they represent the Maltese people”.

Delia appealed to everyone to go out and vote. He said that it is not yet the time for the current government to be ousted however it is time that for those in power to eat humble pie.
