PN - You appreciate things when you lose them
PN Deputy Leader Simon Busuttil kicked off this evening's meeting of the PN's executive committee by highlighting that in the past discussions with the PL, the Opposition has fielded three different speakers whilst PN has been constant.
The aim of this evening's meeting was to ponder, discuss and approval the guidelines for the electoral programmer that the Party will be presenting for the upcoming election.
Contrary to what is taking place in neighboring countries, students in Mata take to the streets to celebrate and party not to protest and strike, because their future lies at rest, however this can all change if the public takes such normalizes for granted. "You appreciate what you had once you loose it but wi a mature and responsible decision on March 9, the country needs not loose it's stable future based on work, health and education," the PN Deputy Leader held.
This stability can only be guaranteed by the Nationalist Party because e trust of the public was earned thanks to the values and beliefs the party rests upon. The values of solidarity and dialogue remain at the foundations of the Nationalist Party, together with embracing our national and European identity.
Dr Busuttil concluded that the option facing the people in the coming elections is a simple one. "On one side you have PL constantly retreating the need for a change in direction without proposing any route and on the other side a party with a proven track record. A party who's slogan says Malta Belongs to Us All, which comes late in the day when the PN has achieved a Europe for Us All," he said.
The Deputy Leader urged the Party followers to stand tall because winning the election is possible and people should be proud to vote PN because they are proud to be Maltese.
Interventions by PN ccouncillors
Evelyn Vella Brincat held that as she promised when she started her battle with cancer she is still present amongst the PN councillors today on the eve of a general election. The ambition which kept her going was the drive to get better and continue her family life and work to pay the debt which was accumulating in order to finance her medication and therapy. "At the time my medication was not available at public hospitals however the PN government has taken the right decisions and now not only these medication are given for free, but the government also gave the country a new hospital, a new oncology centre and a secure structure for public health," she concluded.
Karl Gouder expressed his pride to form part of a team that although embracing diverse ideas and coming from different walks of life it has the single aim of achieving a better country. Work was always a main value for PN, and irrespective of one's background and beliefs, the PN wants to guarantee that the best offers are available for everyone to achieve the height of their careers. This is only achieved through a strong and sustainable educational system. The last pillar of the PN is the health system which a PN led government has created and sustained."We're not here to receive applause we're here to work for the people. The race is between a party that can guarantee a stable future and an amateur party that still has no practical proposals for the country's future," he concluded.
President of the PN Executive Council Marthese Portelli said that the electoral manifesto of the PN puts forward an inclusive, transparent programs at the heart of which lies the best interest of the people and the country.Marthese Portelli continued that all billboards put up by the PL show happy families with a background portraying a Maltese environment. "We thank you for these billboards, because your billboards make us proud and prove that the natural choice on March 9 is a vote for the Nationalist Party," she said.
Minister George Pullicino said that reading through the party's electoral manifesto made him pledge the same drive that in by gone days as a student he had put into organizing protest against a government which did not put the people at the centre of its beliefs.
