Multiparty Partnerships in Practice

On Sunday, June 10, the Prime Minister is reported to have urged "the people to put partisan politics aside and focus on moving ahead as a nation", only to conclude his speech without having made a single direct reference to any political party other than the PN.

However, on the same day, elected representatives from both Labour and the PN actively participated with Alternattiva Demokratika in protest against MEPA's approval of the development of a complex comprising 23 villas at Ramla l-Hamra, Gozo.

AD's invitation to both political parties served to defuse internecine partisan rivalry, uniting exponents of Labour and PN in a common cause under an inclusive AD banner, and in collaborative public opposition to the misguided project.

Common sense cross-party consensus and enlightened co-operation, which transcend traditional partisan pique and senseless antagonism, exemplify the practical art of the possible in mature reasoned politics, for the greater good and lasting benefit of the whole nation.
