  • Improving Maltese Environment and giving Maltese people back their free spaces.


  • Inclusion of Community Work Practice in School Curriculum

    Kids in school, have been and probably are now even more than ever before spending most of their times locked up in a room, sitting in the same position. They have a lot to learn of course but how practical are they learning to be out there with society. Include, at least once a month, a day of community work out of school, example helping out in animal sanctuaries, old people's homes and orphanages. All schools can be provided with a list of places they can go to give a helping hand and gain actual experience in being out there with the rest of society. They will be helping those in need as well.


  • Income Tax

    Reduce the income tax for the manufacturing industry from 35% to 15%. The manufacturing industry has a lot of disadvantages including prime materials, lack of workers and foreign competition. By reducing the income tax rate, I’m quite confident that the government income will remain the same or increase. Same will happen as when JM reduced the property rent tax to 15%. This will also help tax avoidance. As a director in a family run business who comunicate with a lot of people who own a buisness, everyone talks about this issue.


  • Income tax revision for middle class and words used in speeches and have to be more people friendly

    A huge chunk of the electorate could benefit from tax revision especially middle class and upper middle..I believe that there are also a lot of floating voters here... people would also relate more for example describing something as Tal biza u Tal blieh instead of xokkanti and any other such words


  • Increase emphasis on local farming and self-sustainability

    We should be promoting the production, purchasing and consumption of sustainably produced local produce but instead we let fields be turned into residences, car parks or fake greenhouse. We need to implement initiatives (legal and educational) in order to promote local producers (farmers, fisherman, etc.) that utilise sustainable practices by providing support frameworks and educating/pushing locals to opt for local produce over imported items where possible. Promotion of sustainable Agri-Tourism practices and setups would be one way of doing this while also promoting a new form of tourism and supporting local farmers. Subsidise the purchasing of agricultural land for individuals who wish to farm it through property tax rebates or government loans for farmland. These are just a few suggestions and I'm sure there are many more initiatives that your think tank can come up that will promote self-sustainability while also boosting the local economy (win-win).


  • Increase in maternity leave

    A lot of families suffer to find a nanny/ childcare for their first birth and the woman struggles to go back to work after four months. My idea is that women should get at least 6 months maternity leave and those women who suffer complications after delivery and need surgery should be entitled to 1 year maternity leave. There should be an agreement with the employers regarding this because almost all EU countries have better maternity leave conditions for mothers. Those who have children born with certain health conditions also should be entitled to at least 1 year maternity leave. Also women with comolications after delivery shoild be entitled to a midwife/carer to help her at home with the baby if she doesnt have any help from the family. The duration of the support of the midwife/carer at the mothers house should be long depending on how serious her complications are.


  • Increase in peoples’ wages

    Firstly I want to state that I am no economist nor expert but here are my 2 cents. Recently I have been having some discussions with my friends and close relatives and something really struck me. I came to a realization that even though most of us are in above-average paying jobs, in private and public sectors and have post graduate degrees, we are young property owners, who are all struggling to make ends meet. We are all baffled how for example buying property or renting, essential groceries as well as prices for eating out here in Malta were comparable to those in foreign countries with better wages than ours (some of us have lived in these countries or have friends who do). I was curious to see whether there was any statistical evidence that would present a reason to my (and our collective) concern. I first came across a study by Papadopoulos 2020 (link: https://ceoworld.biz/2020/02/03/most-expensive-countries-in-the-world-to-live-in-2020/) which states that Malta is the 26th most expensive country to live in (ranking 20th and 30th out of 132 countries for rent index and groceries index respectively) and yet Malta faired very low under “local purchasing power index” where Malta placed 80th out of 132 countries. This started to shed some light on the discussions I was having. I then came across a report focusing in EU countries; https://www.econstor.eu/bitstream/10419/232558/1/175267751X.pdf which acknowledged that “living costs in Southern Europe are considerably higher than in Eastern Europe, purchasing power is more impacted by the fact of having relatively low nominal minimum wages: minimum wage recipients in Malta (5.24 PPS), Portugal (4.71 PPS) and Greece (4.50 PPS) now have lower real purchasing power than those in some Eastern European EU Member States.” The study also noted that whilst in countries such as Latvia, the minimum wage rose by 13%, in contrast, Malta had only had a “mere” increase of 1%. And it concluded that “according to the Commission’s calculations”, an increase “of well above 30% would be required in Malta” I think this is an issue that needed to be addressed yesterday. People in Malta are feeling the crunch. Ensuring people have an adequate purchasing power means a better quality of life.


  • Increase Teachers' Salaries

    Teachers salaries need to increase drastically and performance bonuses should be given to teachers who deserve them based on some criteria decided upon. Teachers should be considered one of the most valuable occupations of our society as they have a massive role in shaping our future.


  • Information about voting in the coming elections.

    Good afternoon to all, sources that are very well into elections and have participated in the counting hall and as commissioners say that Labour has a state of the art data connected to the Mobile via GPS it helps if we turn off our mobile before we proceed to the voting polls.

  • Inheritance tax and restaurant vat

    I suggest that the inheritance tax is abolished completely. This will alow families to restore old buildings that would have been inherited. However if the building is sold for redevelopment a five per cent tax is implemented. Re restaurant vat. All restaurants are to charge 5per cent. Clients are then reminded that they are to be given a fiscal receipt. In every restaurant a sign is to be put up that every client is to get a receipt and if caught not issuing a receipt the restaurant is fined a 1000euro. Rest assured that the government will manage to collect more tax by lowering the vat rate. This was successful in other countries Awaiting for your comments


  • Insulate Malta


  • Intelligent use of alternative energy technologies

    Whether we like it or not (I like it), we need to work towards carbon neutrality, and we are not doing enough in this country to work towards this. Instead we are working on off-setting our carbon footprint by making lots of noise about minor measures, or buying credits from other countries. This is definitely not the way to do it in my opinion. Instead we should make more intelligent and abundant use of alternative energy technologies. This can include the allowance for testing of new alternative energy technologies around the island. This is already being done on a relatively small scale but we can easily ramp this up, especially when it comes to solar, since we boast about having 300 days of sunshine a year. We need to step up our game with the international community by offering funding and resources (e.g. public buildings) for projects submitted and accepted by a select committee of local experts, This will bring money and jobs into the country through the creation of a new industry, allow us to make use of some the latest energy tech in the world, and also help to put our name on the map. This will also, in-turn, work towards us becoming an eco-destination, which in turn will bring more money into the country and diversify our tourism portfolio - history, culture, beaches, food, saving the world! This will also benefit local researchers and make better use of our limited space to generate energy and help us move towards carbon neutrality. One example I can think of would be the mixed use of solar farms and agricultural/park projects. As opposed to just creating a solar farm (e.g. in a disused quarry) work with stakeholders on making better use of the land to both generate electricity through the solar panels while using the land to grow crops and/or experiment with different alternative crop growing tests. Studies have been conducted to show certain benefits of growing some crops beneath non-opaque panels which allow the ground beneath to remain cooler than if crops were directly exposed to the sun.


  • Internet in Malta. Can we assist when in Govt?

    The quality of internet in Malta is among the worst in Europe, according to a new study analysing the digital quality of life in 110 countries. The country’s internet quality ranked 59th overall, and in Europe it only beat Estonia, coming in at 37th. Malta’s internet stability was particularly poor, with both broadband and mobile internet found to be unstable, though mobile internet particularly so, and the country ranked 100th globally in this area. This category is especially important because it measures how fast and stable the internet connectivity in a country is and how well it’s improving, the study said. “The quality of the internet connectivity highly depends on its speed and stability,” it explained. “Slow and unstable connections inhibit daily use and diminish work efficiency, while fast and stable internet allows us to communicate better, enjoy high-quality content, and more. Consequently, it directly impacts the quality of one’s digital life.” Aside from internet quality, the 2021 Digital Quality of Life study analysed countries in terms of four key pillars: internet affordability, e-infrastructure, e-security and e-Government. The country ranked 40th globally, and 27th among the 38 EU countries on the list. It rated low in internet affordability and e-security categories, coming in at 43rd and 52nd respectively. The research indicated that the average Maltese resident has to work for two hours and 15 minutes to purchase the cheapest broadcast package, and six minutes 15 seconds for the cheapest 1GB of mobile internet. Broadband speed, network readiness, and artificial intelligence readiness were the country’s key strengths, and the country came in at 22nd, 24th, and 30th globally in these categories. Data for the 2021 edition of the survey was compiled by cyber-security firm Surfshark.


  • Introduce, and promote, e-Democracy

    Consultation, or lack thereof, can be problematic, particularly in micro projects in specific localities where a segment of the population is going to be affected. Should the government introduce a platform where it can consult and take suggestions directly from the citizens, it can gauge public opinion instantly. This can also be used to streamline public services, where one would be able to access their own profile from their e-ID and check the services they would need. The opportunities that would open up with e-democracy are endless.


  • Investing in our families

    Sustainable societies depend upon strong families. Families of every shape and size. Our country needs to invest profoundly towards the well being of our children and in building stronger families . There's an endless list of areas which desperately need to be looked into. From the processes at family court, to the derelict state of the majority of public playing fields, that are left to rot with minimal maintenace. From the never ending waiting lists at CDAU where children with disabilities and their families have to wait months for much needed therapies or are forced to go privately, to the discriminatory brackets placed upon the beneficiaries of children's allowance, that discourage hard working and responsible parents.


  • Invest In Maltese Startups

    Pump much more money into Maltese startups to help them gain valuable resources, to build their brand in Malta and most importantly beyond. We have some amazing entrepreneurs that achieve great things with little to no resources at the start, and this would be a great way to export Maltese made products/services.


  • Investment in Sport

    As usual after each Olympics the question what should Malta do to win a medal crops up. The truth is there was never a government which did enough especially for the small associations which actually have a better chance in delivering a medal as they usually run individual sports. The money available for these associations is miserable, with budgets of Eur 3,000 and also they have to pay to rent facilities , even for those run by Sport Mata. In order for sport to thrive I propose that the Government will fully subsidize sports facilities to all national sport associations and increase substantially their budget. The benefits would be more youths to remain active, rather than abandoning sport at a young age (most do so as soon they turn 18) and therefore having a more health society and also increasing Sports tourism. With the current numbers participating in sport , national associations cannot afford to organize good international competitions in Malta. Only after we can start talking about medals. Till now we had cheap talk but no action from politicians of both parties.


  • Isle of the beaches

    A different approach to provide the best beaches in Europe. Beach nourishment Modernizing beach facilities . Sun beds will be symmetrically spaced and made affordable for Maltese families. Self-sufficient Under water lighting for a number of beaches , dive sites and caves .This will be a tourist attraction and prolong typical beach hours .


  • I suggest Dr. Cassola will form part with PN.

    Dr. Cassola is a honest man. Also he's values are close to the PN
