He announced that Xagħra will open a new civic center, police station, a new health and day care centre for the elderly.The Prime Minister said that the Local Council will also be helping the government to start a project to convert the dump at Qortin into a family park.Referring to the topic of the tunnel, Muscat said that his debate with the leader of Opposition showed that Delia had made a U-turn on the tunnel between the two islands. The parliament agreed that this tunnel project should be done, but Delia in the debate on Thursday said it is still uncertain of what to do when in 2013 and 2017 he had already promised to carry out the project.During his speech, Muscat said that the Labour party was the only one to take Gozo seriously.He concluded that both the Maltese and Gozitan people should learn from the promises of the PN, especially that of the tunnel project.Proud of our strong team of local council candidates in #Gozo where Opposition wanted to play political games to stop almost half of electors from voting for their communities -JM #maltafqalbna #ghawdexfqalbna pic.twitter.com/sqEcc6uiTm— Joseph Muscat (@JosephMuscat_JM) May 4, 2019“You have not right to speak about local councils” – PNIn a statement signed by Robert Cutajar, the Opposition spokesman on Local Councils said that the Prime Minister forgot to say that it was the Labour Government two years ago that had got rid of the local council elections in the localities in Malta and Gozo.Moreover, Cutajar said that Muscat did not even say it was the Labour government that ended the election of Management Committees, including three in Gozo; Marsalforn, Xlendi and St. Lucia. According to the PN, Muscat also failed to inform the PL Gozo candidates that local councils are not his “super favourites.”The PN said Mr Muscat and the Labour Party are not credible and do not have the credentials to speak on and be believed on local councils.WhatsApplast_img read more
