Speaker of the House of Representatives Dr. Angelo Farrugia, in a recent interview with Malta Daily, announced plans to remove the existing barriers around the Parliament building.

This decision comes after persistent efforts by Malta Daily and the public to advocate for the removal of the barriers, which have been a point of contention for their imposing presence.

Over the past few months, Malta Daily has been at the forefront of a campaign to reconsider the necessity of these barriers, culminating in a change.org petition that garnered close to 1,000 signatures. The petition and the sustained pressure from the news outlet and its readers have underscored a strong community desire for a more open and welcoming space around one of the country’s key democratic institutions.

Dr. Farrugia’s announcement has been met with positive feedback, reflecting a shared belief in the importance of balancing security needs with the public’s right to access and enjoy public spaces. The move is seen as a step forward in making the Parliament more approachable and less fortress-like, in line with contemporary views on public accessibility and security.
