Good news or bad news for Qala on Hondoq? – Readers Letter
|Email item||Print item||
“It is usual for good news items to hit the news before elections, and Qala is no exception – what with the recent road resurfacing in front of the Council Offices, the repaving of the square, and the opening of the Folk Museum.
So why aren’t Labour taking the opportunity before the upcoming local elections to announce “good news” about Hondoq in the form of the long awaited DPAR report?
Two years ago the Prime Minister stated the Labour party was against the project. A year ago Gozo Minister Anton Refalo, stated there would be no building whatsoever at Hondoq.
If the report is against the proposed development, as are the majority of recommendations, and 85% of the Qalin residents – now would be just the time to announce such good news, before the elections.
However, it has been decided once again to delay the announcement until afterwards, which doesn’t bode well. Surely now is the time to allow MEPA to release their report?”
