Muscat fends off accusations of Labour’s proximity to construction developers
Posted on www.maltatoday.com on Tuesday, 5th February, 2013 by Miriam Dalli.
Opposition leader Joseph Muscat came in for some targeted questions on his plans for the environment and energy in Gozo and Malta today, where he declared that a new Labour government had no plans on the Ta' Cenc project for bungalows and that the party opposed the Hondoq ir-Rummien yacht marina and hotel project.
The Hondoq project is currently being recommended for refusal by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority, although the project developers are known to be rescaling the project down in a bid to have it accepted by MEPA.
Muscat also denied that his proposal for a new 200MW power station and LNG terminal was backed by the interest of some Labour candidate or party official.
Reacting to questions about the Prime Minister's own declarations calling on Labour to reveal who the construction developers backing Labour are, Muscat denied any business interests in his gas power station proposal, and insisted that the proposal was borne out of consultation with both business and environmental groups.
Muscat also said Labour was the only political party to publish its accounts, when asked whether he would be declaring the finances of his electoral campaign. Gonzi said that the PN would be revealing the costs of its electoral campaign after 9 March.
