The Communist Party of Malta strongly believes that the increase in salaries announced to Ministers and Members of Parliament is offensive to all working people. Many families are experiencing a reduction in their standard of living and poor working conditions.
"The fact that several categories of workers are being forced to bear the burden of the economic crisis and unjust energy tariffs is massively out of tune with the increase announced, of 600 euros per month to all Ministers and members of Parliament’s. When in the last fiscal budget, the cost of living increase for all workers and pensioners was only of 1.16euro per week."
The Communist Party of Malta reminds the Government to be sensitive about all those employees working on minimum wage, part-time and short term contracts who are experiencing inferior working conditions, low wage and sometimes even redundancy.
"The increase announced by the government is an insult for the working class and their families. Recent European statistics show that 59,000 people (14.6%) in Maltaare at risk of poverty."
The Communist Party of Malta believes that it is not ethical that the people’s representative should accept such an increase, when the rest of the workers are being made to carry the burden of the crises..
We appeal to all Trade Unions, political parties, civil society, students and workers to make their voices heard against this ‘shameless’ measure.
On the occasion of 19th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s assumption of the Supreme Commandership of the Korean People’s Army
the Communist Party of Malta extends its warm greetings of congratulations to him
Leader Kim Jong Il, who assumed a heavy responsibility of the KPA supreme commandership at such a time as the imperialists were stepping up the anti-socialist offensive against the DPRK, frustrated the aggressive schemes of the imperialists and ensured the security of socialist Korea by strengthening the army into invincible powerful forces.
As he, with the conviction of sure victory and iron will, stood in the van of the army and the people, socialism of
Under his wise Songun leadership, the DPRK has now turned into a powerful political, ideological and military power.
The Communist Party of Malta is convinced that the DPRK’s cause for building a great, prosperous and powerful nation would be finally accomplished under Supreme Commander of KPA Kim Jong Il’s wise leadership.
