Alternattiva Demokratika, the Green Party of Malta, is asking Minister Konrad Mizzi to explain why the PN and PL have been given preferential treatment in the non payment of their water and electricity bills

Ralph Cassar, AD spokesperson on Energy and Transport, said: "Following this revelation that the PN owe 1 million 900.000 euros and the PL 600,000 in unpaid water and electricity bills, and the confirmation by Prime Minister Muscat that this is true, we expect the Minister to explain the situation and inform the public how ARMS will recover the outstanding amounts. While the public is expected to pay its water and electricity bills in time or incur penalties or even disconnection, both leading political parties seem to have enjoyed particular privileges."

Alternattiva Demokratika Chairperson, Prof. Arnold Cassola, said: "We further expect the Minister to explain why the management of ARMS, Enemalta and WSC have failed to take any action against the two parties, both under a PN and under a PL administration. With this "You scratch mine, I scratch yours" mentality, one begins to understand the  real meaning of the "Malta Taghna Lkoll" slogan -  that is, preferential treatment for PN and PL."
