The PN has said that it is the voice of the people, and in a press conference held in Munxar this morning, Nationalist MP Chris Said pledged that they will be the voice of the people of Munxar regarding the plans for a manure clamp in the locality.
He added that if this manure clamp is constructed as planned in Munxar, it will leave a negative impact on the health of the people, on the location and the future of the community.
“That aside, it also means that a large number of vehicles carrying manure will pass through the centre of the village, not only causing traffic problems, but also leaving a trail of smells which will be detrimental to the residents,” the MP said.
The Nationalist Party, Chris Said remarked, was not against the development of a manure clamp, but it should be situated at an alternative site which is not close to where people live.
“Therefore the PN will continue to defend the interests of Munxar residents, especially as there has been no assessment carried out on the impact it will have on the people
Also present for the press conference was MP Robert Cutajar, who said that PN councillors are leading the way in the Local Councils to be the voice of the people.
He also said that the “lack of consultation and decisions that are not in the interest of people have become the order of the day for the government. This case in Munxar is just a link in a chain of bad decisions.”
The Nationalist councillors in Munxar – Damien Spiteri and Paul Curmi explained that they had put forward a motion this week which was approved by the council, seeking to evaluate the application development by experts.
The Nationalist councillors argued that they, “will remain committed too continue working to safeguard the interests and rights of all residents of Munxar.”
