Roberta Metsola Amongst Politico’s Class Of 2024

Roberta Metsola Amongst Politico's Class Of 2024
Nov 28 2023 Share

Listed as ‘the young gun’, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola has been listed on Politico’s Class of 2024. 

The annual ranking covers the most influential people in Europe, divided into three categories – doers, disrupters and dreamers. Metsola was listed on the latter list and praised for the way she led the EU Parliament during challenging times. 

‘Metsola came out of the gates strong, becoming the first president of an EU institution to visit Ukraine after Vladimir Putin launched his lethal invasion (and strongly championing the war-struck country’s efforts to join the EU since)’, wrote Politico. 

‘Perhaps Metsola’s most challenging mission has been to steer her institution through the Qatargate scandal the year before the EU election, amid lurid revelations that MEPs allegedly took bribes from Qatar and Morocco.’

‘Over the past two years, Metsola has steered the institution through turbulent times and positioned herself as a credible candidate for a second term.’

Negotiations With Teacher Unions To Restart As Directives End
Nov 28 2023 Share

Taking to social media in an official statement, Education and Sport Minister Clifton Grima announced that now that the strike is over, the negotiations with the representatives of teachers and their unions will start again. 

Grima wrote how the education sector was on a lot of people’s minds yesterday (Monday 27th November 2023), and that he hopes that everyone understands how important the education system is to our country. 

‘In the past few days I did not mind taking responsibility for the role I was assigned and I reiterate that we should always, first and foremost, keep our respect for each other and educators’. 

‘I always emphasised that teachers deserve more respect by the Maltese and Gozitan people, as well as an increase and improvement in their conditions of work.’ 

‘I always stuck to these principles and I will keep working so as to ensure that these principles guide all those who will sit down at the negotiation table to reach a common goal for everyone.’ 

‘After tonight, the directives were suspended and we can sit down again to reach the goal together’, he wrote, saying that he is not alone in tolerating ‘whoever tried to turn this process into a political issue’. 

He ended by saying that the only way the goals can be reached is by focusing on the fact that everyone wants education to improve for the common good.
