Daniel Attard hopes Maltese MEP delegation will work together, in spite of partisan differences

Newly elected Labour Party MEP Daniel Attard hopes and expects all six elected MEPs to work together for the interests of Maltese and Gozitans as a united delegation, in spite of their equal partisan split.

Attard, who is one of PL’s three elected MEPs in this year’s European Parliament elections, alongside Alex Agius Saliba and Thomas Bajada, told The Malta Independent that he particularly wants to work on legislation relating to consumers’ rights, workers’ rights, minority rights, and preserving our traditions.

The elected PL MEP wishes to work for a European continent that uplifts people, that respects the concepts of sovereignty and neutrality, and one featuring peace and solidarity, rather than an indifferent and war-torn Europe.

Speaking about today’s unpredictable day of results, Attard told journalists that the reasons behind the way the electorate voted must be analysed and that the Labour Party must listen and take action on the messages sent its way via these results.

Referring to the unexpectedly close voter gap, - which tallied up to 8,454 votes – Attard noted that the result must be accepted with great humility, as has he, he said.

“The electorate sent a clear message that we must listen to, and I am committed to listening and to take action,” Attard stated. He added that he is ready to take this action as both a member of the Labour Party, as well as a newly elected member of the European Parliament.
