In a press release, Delia said that Malta is passing through a tough time, as well as a radical transformation. We are facing these challenges today and they will keep affecting us in the future.

The PN has, and will always be, ready in the most proactive manner for these challenges. For this reason, the division of different responsibilities is taking place to make sure the best use of talent within the PN Parliamentary Group is made, as well as to see what our country needs today, more than ever before.

The priorities include the climate emergency, renewal of the working world with the challenges this may present as regards the protection of jobs, how new opportunities can be created, and the strengthening of democracy.

At the same time, we have opportunities that include the ability to grow in a digital society and to better facilitate the accessibility of European funds. Tourism in a new world, adequate and sustainable pensions, and the fight against poverty of all types, are amongst the PN's priorities.

The PN wants to increase its work in Gozo, regional development, and to guarantee true equality.

The proactive work of the Leader of the PN, along with the Parliamentary Group, is to ensure that all these sectors will guarantee the care of the people, as the centre of its political work. The quality of life for every person shall be guaranteed to be in the centre of the work of the PN, without any distinction, in a society that cares.
