Constitutional Reforms: AD welcomes President's Speech

Carmel Cacopardo, AD spokesman on Home Affairs said: “It has been over three years since AD has submitted proposals to former Speaker Louis Galea on electoral reform. The current electoral system is skewed through the introduction of a discriminatory mechanism intended to restore proportionality between the two major political parties excluding everyone else”.

Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson, said: “AD calls for comprehensive consultation with civil society stakeholders for constitutional reform. This imperative in a modern democracy.  It is also high time that the Parliamentary Select committee starts meeting once again to discuss such important matters.

Prof. Arnold Cassola, AD spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, stated:  “The Maltese constitution is direly in need of being updated to keep abreast with global and EU politics, for example, with reference to Malta’s neutrality clause”.
