Opposition leader Adrian Delia said on Monday evening that the way to earn people’s respect is not by being arrogant but by working together and putting forward concrete proposals, at a political activity in Ta’ Xbiex.

Delia said that we are now nearing the actives and commemoration of the 1st of May, which marks both workers’ day and Malta’s accession in the EU. The PN has been visiting hundreds of small business but over the last few days they have been meeting businesses who employ larger amounts of workers.


The PN is doing this to find out the realties faced in the work place by employees and employers, Delia noted. He continued to say that these are the people building the country’s economy, not the government.

Delia said the PN believed in the EU and in the capabilities of the Maltese workers and their ability to participate in the large European market. He also said that the PN had negotiated the best financial packages for businesses, which this government is making use of, sometimes not in the best manner.

He, however, wanted the PN to open any closed doors for businesses to benefit directly from EU funds and to show them the opportunities available.

Speaking about local councils, he said the PL had tried to stop the local council elections from happening, and had succeeded two years ago.

Delia thanked all those local council candidates, even those from the PL, for doing their part for their locality. “We want people who want to do the best for our country, and not for those chosen few to gain.”

For 18 months the PN has being saying that Malta is not prepared for the development that is taking place, something which Delia said Minister for Finance Edward Scicluna admitted to this morning.

Delia said that the PN recognise their limitations, both as an opposition and the fact that they need to start from the bottom by working together. He concluded that with the upcoming elections the aim is not to change the government but the direction it is going in.
