Opposition Leader Adrian Delia has claimed Malta is losing one of its biggest strengths by letting go of our “unique language [that] identifies us”.
During his speech addressing the PN Councillors and supporters gathered, he stated that the language is “under threat” because the government does not care about what makes the Maltese, “truly Maltese”.
“We want to resemble everyone… we want to assimilate with everyone and are forgetting that this unique language identifies us, makes us who we are and gives us our strength.”
During the speech he also mentioned other issues he feels are not being tackled by the government, such as the “suffocating” of the island due to lack of environmental regulations, the issue of corruption and the rights of the “unborn child” surrounding the new IVF bill.
While praising the introduction of new legislation for LGBT+ individuals, Delia also stated a lot more needs to be done to make society more inclusive, not just legislation.
