PL cautions police force of tactical manoeuvres by PN

The Labour Party tells members of the police force to be aware of pledges being made by the Nationalist Party in its “game to steal votes”.

11 August 2012, 12:00am
Labour MP Michael Falzon says one-off payment to police is nothing less than electioneering.
Labour MP Michael Falzon accused the government of playing games with electoral pledges drawing attention to the one-time lump sum paid to members of the Police Force.

“The Labour Party has long been drawing attention to the unsuitable conditions and demoralisation within the police force. In a move typical of electoral opportunism, GonziPN announced some improvements to the current conditions within the force including a one-time payout,” Falzon said.

 Falzon said the PL welcomed the improvements but cautioned the police to be aware of the government’s manoeuvres. “They can ask workers within the public transport sector, shipyard, Air Malta and Go about all of this.”

According to the Labour MP, the police and their families knew that despite these pledges being made by the Nationalist Party, the right to join a trade union still was not being given.

Falzon also questioned whether the latest lump-sum offering was to cover up Nationalist Party’s stance regarding paying the police for overtime.

“The PL will not get lost in the game of electoral pledges rooted in the resentment of past policies. Our Electoral manifest will have proposals based on realism and sustainability. It will be a roadmap for economic growth reaching everyone, and based on a well-thought out strategic framework and not resulting from panic to steal votes,” he said.

Falzon said that the police and their families can rest assured that proposals made by the PL will be implemented if voted into office. “They have their rights and should not have to grovel to anyone.”
