Karmenu Vella : wirja fqira ħafna fi Brussels

Karmenu Vella.Brussels 290914

 

Il-wirja ta’ Karmenu Vella illum huwa u jwieġeb il-mistoqsjiet tal-Membri Parlamentari Ewropej kienet waħda fqira.

Mhux biss ma kellux għarfien adegwat tal-oqsma ambjentali, talli ma wera l-ebda ħeġġa jew viżjoni dwar d-diversi oqsma li kien mistoqsi dwarhom. Tant li Claude Turmes, il-membru Parlamentari tal-Ħodor tal-Lussemburgu ħass il-ħtieġa li jsaqsieħ jekk Juncker taħx struzzjonijiet biex ma jikkommettix ruħu.

Tlift il-kont ta’ kemm il-darba ma kienx f’posizzjoni li jirrispondi, ma tax risposta jew qagħad idur mal-lewża. Buzz-words uża kemm trid. Imma meta kien mitlub ikun konkret f’dak li qed jgħid naqas milli jagħmel dan.

Anke dwar id-Direttiva dwar l-Għasafar żelaq meta ipprova jgħid x’għandu f’moħħu Juncker meta taħ l-inkarigu biex jikkonsolida din id-Direttiva u dik dwar il-Habitats. L-ikbar ċertifikat tawhulu l-Birdlife International meta qalu li : I don’t think we can feel reassured in any way by his performance.

Minkejja dan kollu l-Grupp Soċjalista hu sodisfatt u l-grupp tal-Popolari jafu li x’aktarx li ser ikollhom jitwikkew bih, għax hekk ftehmu ma’ Gianni Pitella u Martin Schultz. Inkella Juncker ma jkollux l-appoġġ tas-Soċjalisti!

Imma x’ser jiġri eżatt għadu mhux ċar, għax għad irridu naraw kif ser imorru l-Kummissarji kollha. Imbagħad jibdew jittieħdu d-deċiżjonijiet.

Nagħlaq b’kumment tal-Greens fil-Parlament Ewropew dwar Karmenu Vella:

Do you think he is suitable for the portfolio he has been assigned?

Not really. He is fully loyal to the political direction that has been outlined by Commission president-elect Juncker. He is capable of lip service on sustainable development (green growth), but did not demonstrate any willingness to take on industry opposition. He lacks commitment and conviction about the issues. It is difficult to imagine him confronting commissioners defending industry interests. He did not come across as a fighter, which is disappointing for one of the most important commissioners for the Greens.

Karmenu Vella : kontroversja bla ħtieġa

Junker + Vella

 

Għada waranofsinnhar Karmenu Vella jippreżenta ruħu biex ikun eżaminat minn żewġ kumitati tal-Parlament Ewropew.

Fid-dibattitu pubbliku li ilu għaddej mill-10 ta’ Settembru 2014, id-diffikulta prinċipali mhiex il-persuna ta’ Karmenu Vella, imma d-deċiżjoni politika li ħa Jean Claude Juncker dwar ir-responsabbiltajiet li assenja lil Karmenu Vella u lil oħrajn. Fl-ittra li ntbagħatet mill-Grupp tal-Ħodor lil Jean Claude Juncker nhar il-Ġimgħa li għaddiet dan kien ċar ħafna u jpoġġi f’perspettiva l-argumenti kollha.

Karmenu Vella il-persuna jidher li ma hu fil-mira ta’ kważi ħadd. L-unika kritika diretta lejh kienet dik tal-Corporate Europe Observatory. Għalhekk ma nistax nifhem kif fl-aħħar siegħat ħoloq il-kontroversja hu stess meta ġew ippubblikati t-tweġibiet li kien mitlub jagħti bil-miktub għal xi mistoqsijiet li sarulu. Hi kontroversja li kien ikunu ħafna għaqli li kieku evita. Imma tawh pariri ħżiena!

Il-gazzetti tal-lum (apparti l-Kullħadd u t-Torċa li baqgħu siekta) kienu mimlijin bil-kummenti li juru kemm Karmenu Vella żbalja bl-ikraħ meta qal li hu ivvota biex Malta tissieħeb fl-Unjoni Ewropeja meta hu ċar li sa ftit ġranet qabel il-votazzjoni tar-referendum tal-2003 hu kien involut b’mod attiv favur il-LE, anke f’dibattitu fuq it-TV.

Issa din kienet kontroversja bla ħtieġa għal Karmenu Vella. Imma kontroversja li ħalliet togħma morra ma bosta. Hawn Malta ħadd m’hu jemmen dak li qal Karmenu Vella dwar kif ivvota. X’ser jagħmlu l-Membri Parlamentari Ewropej ma nafx. Naf biss li ħadd m’hu ta’ subgħajh f’ħalqu. Dawk minnhom li jsegwu x’inhu jiġri jafu l-posizzjoni li ħa l-Partit Laburista f’Malta dwar is-sħubija fl-Unjoni Ewropeja. Min minnhom għaldaqstant jifhem x’qiegħed iħarref Karmenu Vella bil-fors li ser ikollu d-dubju dwar it-tweġbiet l-oħra li Karmenu Vella jagħti fuq l-Ambjent, is-Sajd u l-Politika Marittima. Għax il-loġika tgħidlek li jekk ma ssibhiex bi kbira li tħarref fuq ħaġa l-anqas m’int ser issibha bi kbira li tħarref fuq affarijiet oħra.

B’mod oġġettiv, kieku l-kumitati parlamentari tal-Parlament Ewropew kellhom jiddeċiedu fuq il-kompetenzi individwali tal-kummissarji proposti, madwar 6 minn dawk proposti ma jkunux approvati. Imma nafu li l-Parlament Ewropew u l-Kumitati tiegħu ma jaħdmux hekk sakemm ma jkun hemm affarijiet ta’ serjeta’ kbira li jistunaw. Dejjem sakemm ma jkunx hemm xi gaffe bħalma għamel Rocco Buttiglione fl-2004 inkella sakemm il-Kummissarju li jkun qed iwieġeb ma jweġibx b’mod adegwat mistoqsijiet dwar dak li jidher bħala l-konflitt ta’ interess tiegħu jew tagħha kif kien ġrala l-Bulgara Rumiana Jeleva fl-2010.  Sakemm ma jiġrix hekk hu probabbi li l-Kummissjoni tkun approvata kollha kif propost u dan bl-appoġġ tal-Popolari u s-Soċjalisti kif ukoll tal-Liberali.

Pero jekk jinqala’ dak li mhux previst ma tistax tgħid x’jiġri.

Karmenu Vella jipprova jgħaddina biż-żmien

Karmenu Vella + Dom Mintoff 3

 

Meta qrajt it-tweġibiet li Karmenu Vella kiteb għas-sensiela ta’ mistoqsijiet li għamlulu mill-Parlament Ewropew l-ewwel reazzjoni tiegħi kienet li Karmenu Vella qiegħed jipprova jgħaddina biż-żmien. Għax kif tista’ tispjega li membru prominenti tax-Shadow Cabinet ta’ Alfred Sant ma jaqbilx mal-Kap tiegħu fuq l-issue tas-sħubija ta’ Malta fl-Unjoni Ewropeja u ma jiftaħx ħalqu?

Qabel illum qatt ma smajt lil Karmenu Vella jgħid x’jaħseb dwar l-Unjoni Ewropeja. Qatt ma smajtu jgħid li jaqbel bħalma qatt ma smajtu jgħid li ma jaqbilx.

Ma nafx kif tippretendi li tkun rispettat jekk tipprova tgħaddi ż-żmien bin-nies.

Karmenu Vella ma qalx li reġa’ bdielu matul dawn il-11-il sena mir-referendum. Ma qalx li kellu riżervi dwar l-Unjoni Ewropeja li biż-żmien iċċara l-opinjoni tiegħu dwarhom. Le. Qal li ivvota favur is-sħubija.

Imma allura meta l-Konferenza Ġenerali tal-Partit Laburista iddeċidiet dwar il-posizzjoni tal-Partit Laburista fuq l-Unjoni Ewropeja ma jidhirlix li kien hemm il-vot ta’ Karmenu Vella kontra. L-anqas l-opinjoni tiegħu dwar is-suġġett qatt ma nstemgħet la fil-Konferenza Ġenerali u l-anqas tul is-snin.

Kien ikun iktar rispettat Karmenu Vella kieku kellu l-kuraġġ jgħid il-verita’.

Għandi kull rispett lejn kull Laburist li fl-2003 għażel li jivvota kontra s-sħubija ta’ Malta fl-Unjoni Ewropeja. Naf diversi minnhom. Diversi għadhom isostnu li għamlu sewwa. Uħud tul is-snin bidlu l-opinjoni. Imma għadni qatt ma ltqajt ma Laburist li jiċhad dak li għamel.

Kulħadd għandu d-dritt li jkollu d-dinjita’ tiegħu rispettata. Imma min ma jirrispettax lilu nnifsu kif jista’ qatt jippretendi li ħaddieħor jirrispettah?

Dan huwa l-ewwel kumment tiegħi fuq it-tweġibiet li ta’ Karmenu Vella għall-questionnaire. Ser ikolli nikteb iktar, għax hemm diversi affarijiet li jgħid Karmenu Vella li huwa neċessarju li jkunu mwieġba. Għax ħadd m’għandu dritt li jgħaddina biż-żmien.

Juncker taħt il-lenti tal-Ħodor

four_pillar-sustainable  development

Il-bieraħ Alternattiva Demokratika ippubblikat ittra li Rebecca Harms u Philippe Lamberts mexxejja konġunti tal-Grupp tal-Ħodor fil-Parlament Ewropew bagħtu lil Jean Claude Juncker il-President elett tal-Kummissjoni Ewropeja.

F’din l-ittra li l-oriġinal tagħha jista’ jinqara hawn Harms u Lamberts qed jilmentaw li fit-tqassim tar-responsabbiltajiet lill-Kummissarji l-ġodda Juncker injora l-fatt li t-trattat Ewropew fl-artiklu 3.3 tiegħu ipoġġi bħala mira ċara tal-Unjoni Ewropeja li din taħdem favur l-iżvilupp sostenibbli.

Dan l-obbligu, jemfasizzaw Harms u Lamberts mhux rifless fir-responsabbiltajiet tal-Viċi Presidenti u l-anqas fl-ittri tal-ħatra tal-Kummissarji differenti.

L-emfasi fuq it-tnaqqis tar-regolamentazzjoni flimkien mal-fatt li ingħaqdu flmkien responsabbiltajiet ta’ dawk li sal-lum kienu dikasteri differenti huwa ferm inkwetanti. L-Ambjent ingħaqad mas-Sajd u l-Politika Marittima filwaqt li l-Enerġija u l-Azzjoni dwar it-Tibdil fil-Klima inġabru ukoll fir-responsabbiltajiet ta’ Kummissarju wieħed. Dan kollu flimkien iwassal għat-tħassib fundat li l-importanza għal azzjoni ambjentali ser tkun imdgħajfa filwaqt li l-ħidma dwar l-impatti klimatiċi ser tonqos drastikament.

Dan kollu hu konfermat ukoll miċ-ċaqlieq ta’ numru ta’ responsabbiltajiet li sal-lum kienu meqjusa bħala primarjament responsabbiltajiet ambjentali li issa ġew assenjati f’direttorati ġenerali oħra.

Fid-dawl ta’ dan il-Ħodor ħeġġew lil Jean-Claude Juncker biex jagħmel tibdil fir-responsabbiltajiet tal-Kummissarji u dan billi :

l-ewwel: jassenja r-responsabbilta għall-iżvilupp sostenibbli lil wieħed mill-Viċi Presidenti,

it-tieni: jissepara mill-ġdid ir-responsabbilta għall-klima minn dik għall-enerġija u dik għall-ambjent mis-sajd u l-politika marittima,

it-tielet: jirrevedi l-ittri tal-ħatra ta’ numru ta’ kummissarji ewlenin billi jagħti importanza u prijorita’ lis-sostenibilita kif ukoll lill-użu għaqli tar-riżorsi naturali u lill-bijodiversita,

ir-raba’ jirrevedi ċ–ċaqlieq ta’ responsabbiltajiet li tneħħew mid-Direttorat Ġenerali tal-Ambjent.

Fl-ittra tagħhom Harms u Lamberts jemfasizzaw li huwa obbligu tal-Parlament li jassugura illi l-interessi taċ-ċittadini Ewropej ikunu imħarsa huwa u jsir l-iskrutinju u l-ħatra tal-Kummissjoni. It-tibdil li dwaru l-Ħodor qed jinsistu huwa fl-interess taċ-ċittadini Ewropej u għaldaqstant il-Ħodor jidhrilhom illi jekk dan it-tibdil ma jseħħx huwa impossibli għalihom li jagħtu appoġġ lill-Kummissjoni l-ġdida.

Diġa kien hemm reazzjonijiet għal dan kemm minn Martin Schultz President tal-Parlament Ewropew kif ukoll minn Juncker innifsu.

Schultz irreaġixxa limitatament għall-punt dwar l-iżvilupp sostenibbli. Il-bieraħ stess ENDS Europe irrappurtat lil Schultz hekk : New Commission needs sustainability Vice President.

Schultz jidhirlu li hu żball da parti ta’ Juncker li ħalla barra responsabbilta għall-iżvilupp sostenibbli mir-responsabbiltajiet tal-Viċi Presidenti.

Min-naħa l-oħra Juncker isostni kemm il-ġabra flimkien ta’ responsabbiltajiet tal-ambjent, sajd u politika marittima kif ukoll dawk dwar il-klima u l-enerġija. Min-naħa l-oħra jsostni ukoll li r-responsabbilta’ dwar l-iżvilupp sostenibbli hi tal-Kummissarji kollha.

 

Din hi l-kritika kostruttiva li qed jagħmlu l-Ħodor fil-Parlament Ewropew. Mhiex kritika indirizzat lejn xi pajjiż jew lejn xi Kummissarju partikolari. Dawk qed isiru ukoll minn ħaddieħor u huma motivati minn diversi raġunijiet.

Nistennew u naraw kif ser jiżviluppaw is-seduti pubbliċi li fihom, min-nhar it-Tnejn il-Kummissarji l-ġodda ser ikunu skrutinati dwar il-kompetenzi tagħhom.

Id-diskussjoni tkompli.

Pre-grilling Open Letter to Karmenu Vella From BirdLife Malta

BirdLife Malta

Friday, 26th September 2014

BirdLife Malta has today sent an open letter  to Karmenu Vella, proposed Maltese European Commissioner for the Environment,  Martime Affairs and Fisheries, ahead of his grilling by MEPs in Brussels on Monday.

In the letter, BirdLife Malta urges Mr Vella to give clear and unequivocal answers to questions about the Birds Directive and how he will deal with how it is mispplied in Malta and elsewhere.  This  follows comments by departing European Commissioner Potocnik at a conference earlier this week in which he clearly challenged Karmenu Vella to deal with the problems in Malta caused by a “small minority,” and that hunting and illegal killing and trapping are undeniable problems in “several regions in Europe.”

BirdLife Malta Executive Director, Steve Micklewright said, “The out-going Commissioner made veiled comments about the situation in Malta in his…

Its BBQ time

Karmenu Vella + Dom Mintoff

On Monday 29 September at 2.30pm Karmenu Vella, Malta’s nominee to the Juncker led EU Commission will meet with Members of the European Parliament who sit on the Parliamentary Committees dealing with the Environment, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs. They will listen to his introductory views on the responsibilities which he has been assigned and subsequently they will ask questions.

For three hours they will listen to his answers after which they will decide whether in their opinion he is suitable for the post to which he has been nominated, that is as EU Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries.

The MEPs will be interested to hear Karmenu Vella explain as to how he will go about with the proposed revision and possible consolidation of the Birds Directive and the Habitats Directives which matter he was specifically instructed by Commission President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker to take in hand. These views are especially significant in view of the quasi unconditional support which the Labour Party in Malta gives to hunters and trappers. The European Voice on Monday 22 September paraphrased it very accurately when it stated that: the matter “is particularly sensitive because Malta has been in repeated and continued violation of these laws because of bird hunting.” Will Karmenu Vella, for example, in view of the Labour’s experiences in Malta seek to sanction spring hunting within the rest of the EU? MEPs will undoubtedly be very eager to learn about what possiblies lies ahead if EU Environmental governance is dependent on Karmenu Vella!

In the letter of appointment Jean-Claude Juncker identified 5 clear targets which Karmenu Vella has to attain, namely:

  1. The overhaul of existing environmental legislative framework,
  2. The European Union strategy about the quality of air,
  3. The circular economy and the results achieved to date and in the light of the first reactions of the European Parliament and of the Council of Ministers,
  4. The implementation of the common fisheries policy,
  5. Active participation in international fora on the Oceans within the United Nations and other multilateral and bilateral fora.

MEPs would be very much interested as to what is in store as a result of environmental deregulation. Which legislative instruments will be targeted? How will Karmenu Vella in his role as Commissioner  seek to ensure that the protection which the EU has to date afforded to both man and the eco-system is not dismantled but rather reinforced?

The European Chemicals Agency which deals with the implementation of the REACH Directive has been removed from the Environment portfolio and transferred to the portfolio dealing with Enterprise. This is not a matter which Karmenu Vella has to answer for but it is indicative as to the forces at play on Juncker’s table. The REACH Directive is not considered as an environmental matter by Jean-Claude Juncker. In his opinion it has to be administered primarily in the interests of enterprise, that is of business and industry.

Committees of the European Parliament will by now have digested the experiences of former European Commissioner John Dalli. As a result they would be more than interested about Karmenu Vella’s contacts with the business world, about his thoughts on lobbying as well as what he think’s transparency is all about.

A report published by the Corporate Europe Observatory earlier this month is entitled: Do not bet on the commissioner: the case of Karmenu Vella of Malta.  Since this report emphasises that Karmenu Vella “is not suitable to be a commissioner” the members of the Committees of the European Parliament would undoubtedly wish to hear from Karmenu Vella as to why, in his opinion they should arrive at a different conclusion.

Squeezing Labour’s balls

squeezing the ball

 

Last week’s hunting related incidents and the reactions of Joseph Muscat’s government is clear indication that Malta’s Labour Party is fed up of being blackmailed by the hunting lobby. It is realising, just eighteen months into this administration’s life that the hunting lobby has been squeezing Labour’s balls for far too long. It seems that Labour has finally found the appropriate time to ensure that the hunting lobby let go.

But will they?

Its much more than the need not to embarrass Commissioner-designate Karmenu Vella in next week’s hearing at the European Parliament. It is in fact the direct result of Juncker’s challenge through the determination of Vella’s portfolio.

Earlier this month the Guardian, in what is most probably the most accurate assessment of Juncker’s strategic thinking, stated that “Juncker is effectively calling the bluffs.”

The Guardian, analysing Juncker’s nominations, has concluded that Jean-Claude is putting a number of national governments on the spot. Specifically referring to the British, French, Hungarian, Greek, German and Dutch designate-Commissioners the Guardian argues that Juncker has strategically placed them in charge of policy areas which their national governments have a problem with.

Even though the Guardian did not refer to Karmenu Vella’s portfolio it is pretty obvious that Vella fits the bill perfectly. Karmenu Vella as Environment Commissioner will have very little room to manoeuvre in order to accommodate Muscat’s hunting and trapping commitments and hence if Muscat opts to continue to defy the EU environmental acquis he will be in for a lot of trouble and embarrassment.  Karmenu Vella will be the reluctant executioner. Joseph Muscat clearly wants to avoid this.

This is Juncker’s gamble as a result of which the squeeze on Labour’s balls may get worse.

Bit-tromba flok bis-senter

birds through binoculars

 

Il-bieraħ il-Pulizija tellgħu il-Qorti 10 persuni, deskritti bhala kaċċaturi, in konnessjoni mad-dimostrazzjoni fil-Belt kontra s-sospensjoni tal-istaġun tal-kaċċa fil-ħarifa, kif ukoll dwar l-inċidenti vjolenti fil-Buskett. (Nota: s’issa għadu ma ttella’ ħadd il-Qorti fuq l-inċidenti tal-Buskett. Dawk imtella’ l-Qorti s’issa huma dawk li kienu involuti fl-inċidenti l-Belt. Il-Pulizija għadha qed tinvestiga.)

L-akkużi jinkludu li attakkaw kif ukoll li weġġgħu ġurnalista u żewġ fotografi.

Naħseb li ħadd minn dawk li jinstabu ħatja m’għandu jintbagħat l-ħabs. L-aħjar sentenza tkun waħda ta’ servizz fil-komunita, 100 siegħa kull wieħed bit-tromba jħarsu lejn għasafar ta’ kull xorta. Birdwatching taħt superviżjoni.

Fiċ-ċirkustanzi naħseb li dik tkun l-iktar sentenza ġusta: bit-tromba flok bis-senter. Bla dubju n-natura tista’ tkunilhom ta’ għajnuna kbira biex jikkalmaw ftit kif ukoll biex ikollhom ftit ċans japprezzaw dak li qed jikkampanjaw biex joqtlu.

Wara l-vjolenza fil-Buskett: ir-referendum dwar il-kaċċa fir-rebbiegħa

referendum

L-inċidenti tal-ġimgħa l-oħra kienu gravi. Kemm il-qtil tat-tajr protett kif ukoll l-attitudni irresponsabbli ta’ dawk il-200 kaċċatur li ddemostraw il-Belt waranofsinnhar u iktar l-azzjoni vjolenti tat-30 ruħ minnhom li baqgħu sejrin sal-Buskett u sawtu lil dawk li kienu qed josservaw l-għasafar fil-Buskett.

L-attutudni tal-FKNK kienet waħda ambivalenti. Min-naħa l-waħda tiddisassoċja ruħha minn dak li ġara. Imbagħad min-naħa l-oħra qalet li “tifhem il-frustrazzjoni tal-kaċċaturi”.  Minkejja dan, imma, n-nies hemm barra ma jifhmux l-affarijiet kif qed jippruvaw ipinġuhom l-FKNK.

 

Fost il-kummenti tan-nies spikkaw dawk dwar ir-referendum abrogattiv li dwaru l-proċess skond il-Liġi miexi kif suppost. In-nies trid iktar informazzjoni dwar ir-referendum u tixtieq li dan isir illum qabel għada.

Wara li nġabru l-firem għar-referendum, dawn ġew ivverifikati mill-Kummissjoni Elettorali li infurmat b’dan lill-Qorti Kostituzzjonali. Ir-Reġistratur tal-Qorti Kostituzzjonali nhar it-3 ta’ Lulju 2014 ħabbar li kien hemm 41,494 firem validi biex jissejjaħ referendum abrogattiv dwar l-Avviż Legali 221/2010 liema avviż legali jippermetti li permezz ta’ deroga ssir kaċċa għas-summien u l-gamiem fir-rebbiegħa.

Dan l-avviż tar-Reġistratur tal-Qorti Kostituzzjonali jfisser li dakinhar tal-avviż beda jgħodd iż-żmien għall-oġġezjonijiet: hemm fil-fatt tlett xhur ċans u dawn jagħlqu fl-aħħar tal-ġimgħa d-dieħla, nhar il-Ġimgħa 3 t’Ottubru 2014.

Wara li jidħlu l-oġġezzjonijiet, li bla dubju ser jippreżentaw (kif għandhom kull dritt) il-kaċċaturi, tibda l-aħħar fażi tal-mixja legali. L-ewwel dawk li qed jikkoordinaw il-proċeduri tar-referendum iwieġbu l-oġġezzjonijiet, u mbagħad il-Qorti Kostituzzjonali, wara li tisma’ dak li jkollhom xi jgħidu l-avukati tagħti d-deċiżjoni tagħha.

Nistennew deċiżjoni tal-Qorti Kostituzzjonali bejn Diċembru u Jannar. Wara, jekk il-Qorti Kostituzzjonali tiddeċiedi li r-referendum abrogattiv għandu jsir (u s’issa ma jidher li hemm l-ebda raġuni għala m’għandiex tgħid li għandu jsir) ikun possibli li tiġi stabilita d-data tar-referendum abrogattiv. Din tkun mhux qabel ma jgħaddu tlett xhur mid-deċiżjoni tal-Qorti Kostituzzjonali, imma mhux iktar tard minn sitt xhur mill-istess deċiżjoni.

It-triq hi ftit twila, imma jeħtieġ li nieħdu paċenzja ftit ieħor.

Fl-aħħar m’għandix dubju li ser naslu biex il-kaċċa fir-rebbiegħa f’Malta tispiċċa darba għal dejjem. Il-vjolenza m’hu ser taqta’ qalb ħadd. Pjuttost qed tiftaħ għajnejn iktar nies li sa ftit ilu kienu bierda u li issa iktar minn qatt qabel qed jirrealizzaw il-gravita’ tas-sitwazzjoni.

Wasalna hawn minħabba li ż-żewġ partiti politiċi fil-Parlament tul is-snin baxxaw rashom għal dak li riedu l-kaċċaturi. Huwa bis-saħħa tar-rieda popolari u b’mod partikolari dawk il-41,494 firma li nġabru mill-għaqdiet ambjentali u Alternattiva Demorkatika li fl-aħħar ser ikun possibli biex flimkien inħassru dak li għamlu l-PN u l-PL: biex il-kaċċa fir-rebbiegħa f’Malta tispiċċa darba għal dejjem.
