The Communist Party of Malta supports the appeal made by Dr Alfred Sant in the European Parliament calling on the Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S & D) to support the proposal put forward by the Greek Government to the European Commission for a debt relief.
“The stand taken by Dr Alfred Sant contrasts with the comments made recently by the Government who is insisting that the Greek Government should respect the obligations, and treaties signed by previous Administrations. These obligations mean a continuation of EU austerity measures on the people of Greece".
The Communist Party of Malta stated that “it was not the working class that had brought about the collapse of the Greek economy, but the capitalist speculative system. We support the positions that are being taken by the Leftist Government in Greece, in defense of the working class.
