Press Release Wednesday 16th June, 2016
Sannat Referendum is a rushed process
Front Ħarsien ODZ said that the sudden news that a referendum will be held in Sannat this Saturday raises suspicion about its legitimacy.
“In the democratic world, referendum dates are announced months in advance so as to enable proper debate. The Gozitan and Maltese public got to know about the Sannat referendum about development in Ta’ Ċenċ only 5 days in advance through the press”.
“Moreover, the issue to be discussed is being misrepresented. No mention is made of the fifteen villas that make up part of the project which Sannat residents are being consulted on.”
Front Ħarsien ODZ once again invites the Labour-led council in Sannat to oppose the ODZ development.
