Here Is Why People Want Parliament Barriers Removed
Feb 12 2024 Share

MaltaDaily is currently campaigning to have the parliament barriers removed, with an ongoing petition racking up 697 signatures as of writing. 

The petition on change.org which you can find the link to in our bio, also allows signers to give their reasons as to why they are pushing for the removal of the barriers.

Some describe the barriers as an eye sore in terms of aesthetics, but many also stated that their presence indicates something much more sinister.

Some pointed out that the parliament should be accessible to the common people, given that the elected members of parliament are lent the position through their votes.

Others were much more damning in their critique, saying that it indicates an almost dictatorial stance by the government.

What do you think? If you’d like to sign the petition, you can find the link here.
