      Congratulations to one & all. I do hope that the Regional Council of Gozo will stop the building rape of Gozo and keep the Village Core aspects as they are.

      Gozo Regional Council must guard – protect and see that existing Laws & Regulations are implemented and if not to speak out without fear or favor. The smallness of Gozo and people knowing & are familiar with each other or intermarriages do not hold back one from taking the required legal actions.

      Administrative personnel are their for the people – of the people & from the people, so it is their duty to follow our laws of administrative & regulatory by-laws.

      Who ever opens a business/close embankments, etc, etc,one must insist that the required permits are issued and not let any jack or john open bars or close roads/side-walks to their personal interest to the detriment of the general public.

      So given these responsibilities on each & everyone on your shoulders should be a burden to put on an example in reality and not just there for publicity.

      I note the comments ‘re gender imbalance and agree, however I’m not sure how many women vs men stood for election?

      As far as the rape of Gozo with what seems like uncontrolled building I couldn’t agree more.

      It’s a shame with the huge amount of derelict and empty buildings both home’s and commercial, construction of new ones continues.

      I’d be interested to know why.

      Gozo is a beautiful island but unfortunately we (Yes I’m a foreigner) only realise what we’ve lost when it’s too late.
