Quality of Life is a Green Priority - AD
Alternattiva Demokratika, in a press conference in Santa Venera, said that in parliament it will ensure a good quality of life to Maltese citizens through realistic proposals.
Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson, said that "this week both PN and PL confirmed that they will keep giving second division status to common citizens, to water, quality of air and environmental protection, and that they will keep promoting overdevelopment. This is unacceptable.”
Biguglio added that AD, on the other hand, is insisting that “MEPA is led by persons truly committed to environmental protection and sustainable development where in parliament, we will insist that board members and top officials should undergo a public screening process through parliament, and thus be examined in public on their experience and qualifications, and not on party affiliation.”
Prof. Arnold Cassola stated that, "As the voice of reason in the Maltese parliament, AD will only make realistic pledges, which are sustainable for the Maltese economy. Therefore, whilst proposing strong investment in day care centres and in renewable energy as well as a rise in minimum wage, in pensions for disability and a decent salary for decent jobs, we are also responsibly proposing progressive taxation whereby those who earn more pay more and a one per thousand tax on the sale of bonds and shares in order to ensure that better jobs and better social measures can be funded in a sustainable way. This is the way forward for responsible governance".
