It was great to meet again a good number of friends and supporters on Sunday. This year the Christmas social gathering was held at Tal-Wileġ Restaurant in Qala. Apart from having a great lunch, Arnold Cassola, Alternattiva Demokratika - The Green Party Chairperson, presented Yvonne Ebejer Arqueros' and his own European Parliament candidatures for the European elections scheduled for next June 2009.
Arnold Cassola said that through the presence of Alternattiva Demokratika in the European Parliament the whole country would gain because Malta would not remain represented in the European Parliament in only two of the present ten parliamentary groups, but would also start being represented in the third group, The Green Group in the European Parliament. This would mean that for the first time around another 50 Green MEPs would be influenced directly and positively to safeguard the interests of Our country.
Yvonne Ebejer Arqueros said that the election of an Alternattiva Demokratika Member of Parliament would signify the defence of European environmental legislation, which is so necessary for the enhancement of quality tourism and for the ensuing jobs created, in particular in Gozo.
It was also nice having Dr. Harry Vassallo ex-AD leader with us. During the same activity, Michael Bajada, in the name of the AD Gozo regional Committee presented Dr Harry Vassallo with a memento for all the work he has done throughout the years for the betterment of the quality of life of all Gozitans.
Alternattiva Demokratika also announced that it is working to present candidatures for the Local Council elections scheduled in Gozo for 2009.
