PM – Labour’s MEPA proposals make no sense
Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi who met with supporters in Kalkara, said that the Labour’s proposal to separate the environment from the planning processes in MEPA did not make any sense.
He stated that “the Government has to be given a leading role” with regards to the development permit applications, and added that Muscat’s proposal is ‘strange’.
With this proposal, Gonzi pointed out that the country would go back in time to when permits used to be decided by politicians which resulted in many abuses.
Gonzi said that the Nationalist Party wants to continue helping people to invest especially in old buildings where he added that a better quality of life is one of the main factors which is given importance in the party’s electoral programme.
