MaltaDaily Campaigning To Remove Parliament Barriers

MaltaDaily Campaigning To Remove Parliament Barriers
Feb 7 2024 Share

SIGN THE PETITION HERE.

In November 2019, Malta faced significant unrest, marked by escalating protests concerning the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder case and calls for the resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. 

These protests culminated in the installation of barriers ahead of subsequent demonstrations. Despite nearly five years passing since their erection, the barriers remain, prompting questions regarding their necessity and longevity.

Conversations surrounding the barriers have been widespread. Deputy David Thake raised the issue in July 2021, seeking clarity from the Speaker of Parliament. However, a definitive resolution remains elusive, even after inquiries by Deputies Darren Carabott and Eve Borg Bonello in July 2022.

MaltaDaily is therefore officially campaigning to have these barriers removed – and we need YOU to help us do so. 

You can sign the petition on change.org and contribute to removing the barriers from in front of our parliament!

Feb 7 2024 Share

Labour MEP Alex Agius Saliba has been nominated for the ‘Youth Champion of the Mandate’ award by Parliament Magazine for his exceptional contributions over the past five years. He stands as the sole Maltese MEP nominated this year and across all four editions of the awards in this mandate, previously recognized for his efforts in various sectors. At 36, Agius Saliba served as Vice President of the Socialists and Democrats group, pivotal in enacting significant legislation in the European Parliament, notably advocating for a universal digital device charger, despite pushback from major players like Apple.

Recognized as the 35th most influential MEP and featured among Politico’s “20 MEPs to watch,” Agius Saliba’s recent triumph includes championing the “Right to Disconnect” campaign, now progressing into a directive by the European Commission, safeguarding workers’ free time from work-related obligations.

Locally, Agius Saliba fights for vulnerable groups and Maltese traditions, evidenced by his initiative to investigate monopolistic practices in the food retail sector, yielding a significant price reduction agreement. Grateful for the nomination, he looks ahead to further serving Maltese interests in the upcoming legislative term.
