“For me it is not acceptable, whoever the Prime Minister may be, to have a salary of €73,000… it’s hilarious.” These were the words of Valletta Cultural Agency chairman Jason Micallef on Malta Daily’s show The Interview with Fabian Demicoli.

Micallef highlighted that a Prime Minister carries an enormous responsibility from Monday to Sunday throughout the whole year. He went on to state that the same could be said for Ministers and other representatives, going as far as saying that their current salaries are a ‘joke’.

During Malta Daily’s latest episode of ‘The Interview with Fabian Demicoli’, which welcomed VCA Chairman Jason Micallef, it was revealed that he was amongst the first people that stated that Konrad Mizzi & Keith Schembri should leave.

Micallef also stated that he had called for the two politicians’ exit internally, going on to highlight that after the 2017 election, even if they weren’t found guilty, they had to leave on their own accord. “If you really have the party and Malta close to your heart, you had to leave, not burden Prime Minister Muscat with such a problem.”

During his recent appearance on Malta Daily’s ‘The Interview with Fabian Demicoli’, Jason Micallef stated that, despite calls for his participation, he will most certainly not contest any election any time soon.

The VCA Chairman revealed that the reasoning behind this is that he is his own person and cannot wear ‘a mask’ and visit people’s homes promising things that he does not believe in or aren’t his. Providing an example, Micallef stated that he is not in favour hunting and trapping and cannot contest and promise such things if he does not agree with them.

Do you agree?

Gozo’s heliport may be extended to an airport in the coming weeks

Gozo's heliport may be extended to an airport in the coming weeks

In a recent announcement by Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri, it was revealed that Gozo’s heliport will be extended to be able to handle an 11-passenger small fixed-wing aircraft. Further plans will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Camilleri stated that such a development is natural for the Gozo service due to the expansion of public transport such as the recent addition of the fourth ferry between Malta & Gozo and the new fast ferry service. The airport will cater to fixed-wing aircrafts with a minimum environmental impact and it will not commit to more land than is already committed to the heliport.

The Minister had revealed that flight operators had previously expressed an interest in investing on such a service, even alluding to the possibility of flight schools and drone testing.

Do you welcome such a development?
