Maltese representatives in the European Parliament should strive to create a social Europe that gives priority to equity and fairness across the continent. The real fundamental problem has been that though in recent years Europe has experienced economic growth, inequalities and social unfairness have increased. This is undermining solidarity within nations and between nations, said former Prime Minister Alfred Sant during a political activity at the Orpheum Theatre, Gżira.

Europe must secure the interests of young people, workers, pensioners, self-employed and introduce measure which counter the social injustices that flourished during the past years.

Alfred Sant said the Labour Party in Malta has always shielded the interests of workers. This should also be done in Europe together with those defending workers’ interests across Europe.

“Notwithstanding that we are the smallest state of the European Union, Malta had managed to maintain prosperity and serenity. We need to sustain our confidence in Malta’s future and what its people can do if they remain united and outward looking.

Alfred Sant said too many Maltese are not aware of the consequences of decisions taken in Brussels which affect their future and that of their families. During the past five years, the Maltese MEP’s Office updated the general public of this reality.

“And if I have the confidence of the Maltese and Gozitan electorate I will continue to inform the public with the latest developments in Europe that affects our daily lives.”

Alfred Sant said it is in the interests of Maltese and Gozitans that everyone votes to all the Labour candidates in the upcoming  European elections.
