Republika urges public to ‘vote responsibly’

9:05 Civil society group Republika has urged the public to “vote responsibly”, saying it is a crucial decision, especially as candidates are “bombarding” the people with promises.

“Repubblika encourages voters to choose people who truly believe in the rule of law, who are uncorrupt and who will truly fight corruption and people who will put good above all else.”

What happened to the planned Bugibba Square project? – Cassole

9 am Independent candidate Arnold Cassola started the day by accusing Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo of secretly “brainstorming” restaurateurs and hoteliers in the district this week.

Cassola said Bartolo unveiled plans for the project in July, announcing an investment of 1.4 million euros. The minister had said that the project would be finished by the summer.

“May I ask if the plans are still in effect or have they been changed?

“Will this open public space really be public without any concessions to businesses? Will public benches be installed? Is this what Clayton Bartolo secretly discusses with hoteliers and restaurateurs in his constituency?”

Cassola also questioned why the minister ‘secretly’ met with the hospitality industry. Cassola provided no information on when these meetings were held or who attended.
