Communists appeal for public ownership of indispensable commodities.
The Communist Party of Malta said that “fuel and gas, together with energy are all essential commodities that the government should control. Government’s policy to hedge for buying oil internationally should not be suspended”.
“The political strategy, implemented recently by the government to gradually take over the operation of Enemalta Petrolium Division was a good policy as this will make it easier for any future government to safeguard affordability and sovereignty of this commodity”, stated the Communist Party of Malta.
The Communist Party of Malta concluded by stating “that essential commodities should all be under public control. With the privatisation in 2004 of the gas service, the government have thrown away his social responsibility. The privatisation of energy production is also a great political mistake”.
