‘We need to rise above partisan politics’

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia said that an average person on the street would get dragged to court if they do not pay VAT on half a dozen of cheesecakes while those in power get away with corruption. Delia was interviewed on the Nationalist Party media NetFM on Saturday morning.

Delia said that the days when everything revolved around partisan politics were over. He insisted that it was now time to truly start putting the country first. Delia urged people to think beyond their political affiliations, adding that Partit Nazzjonalista will be working on itself to ensure that all this will change. He said that the country needs to move on from ‘Malta for everyone’ [Malta tagħna lkoll] to ‘Everyone is Malta’ [Malta aħna lkoll].

The interview focused on the outcomes of the General Council meeting which was convened on Friday morning during which a document containing 15 good governance proposals was launched.

Delia explained that the highest organ within Partit Nazzjonalista convened to ensure that the Opposition is fulfilling its duties in the current political crisis. He added that the party will not wait for the government to put forward its suggestions, adding that the government can consider the Opposition’s proposals and apply them for the benefit of the country.

The Opposition leader said that people should be able to express themselves freely without fearing that they would lose their jobs. He added that in Malta there are various talented youths and individuals, asking why one would allow themselves to be overcome by corruption.

Delia said that Partit Laburista was keeping the country stagnant, saying that the Nationalist Opposition will continue to fight for the truth and what is good. ‘Every citizen should be part of this change,’ Delia concluded.
