*PR 21-04-2014Busuttil and Muscat – champions of the status quo *

The leader of the Opposition should decide whether he is leading a

political party which takes decisions on issues or not.

AD Secretary General, *Ralph Cassar*, said:"It is clear that the

Nationalist Party prefers sitting on the fence and is copying Muscat in

sitting on the fence. With divorce the party took a 'no' stance and then

had a sizeable number of its MPs voting in favour. With the spring hunting

referendum the party is still pandering to hunters. On Civil Unions it kept

mum until the last moment and then did not have the courage to take a clear

cut position in parliament, but instead lashed out at the Church, whom

Simon Busuttil seemingly expects to do the party's work. On the first small

step towards decriminalization of drugs for personal use it is pertinent to

ask whether Simon Busuttil wants to send young people who might need help

to prison? Probably the PN will take a decision at the last moment. This

kind of party does not deserve support in the forthcoming European

Parliament elections. It is copying Muscat's wait-and-see politics. Only AD

is credible on issues ranging from the destruction of the environment, to a

more humane stance in social policies."

On the issues of decriminalization of drugs for personal use, AD

spokesperson for Social Policy *Robert Callus* said "Why is the PN not

taking a stand? Maybe because they ideologically agree with criminalizing

drug users but are also aware that due to this a substantial amount of

their voters are labelled criminals?

"Why this reluctance to change our draconian laws, which have shown time

after time that Malta's "war on drugs" is a miserable failure? Skeptics of

decriminalization should only read the success story of Portugal where not

only didn't drug use increase significantly since decriminalizing all drugs

in 2001 but has seen a significantly lower rates of drug related crime and

disease. Decriminalization of personal use is a win-win situation for

literally everyone."

Secretary General Ralph Cassar concluded:"Simon Busuttil wants to turn the

EP elections into a issue free beauty contest between PN and PL. But he

should also remember that in reality there is not much choice between the

old style politics both of them espouse. A vote for both of them will just

mean a vote for the stale status quo. Those who want real change will vote
