Cassola “Muscat at Premier League is just an excuse for a savage building and commercialisation spree”

In a press release Arnold Cassola, Independent candidate, stated that the election of Joseph Muscat to head the Premier League is just an excuse to push for the commercialisation of the football stadia premises.
“This corresponds to Joseph Muscat’s point 2: “Niggeneraw aktar negozju u dhul indipendenti”.
 Yesterday’s election gave the following result: Hibs, Hamrun, Floriana, Sirens, Mosta, Marsaxlokk and Gżira voted in favour of Muscat.
 Gudja, Santa Lucija, Birkirkara and Valletta voted against.
 Pieta’, Żebbuġ and Balzan abstained.
 If one looks at the seven clubs voting in favour of the internationally disgraced former Prime Minister, one realizes that the Presidents or close associates of these clubs have strong interest in the building industry (Hamrun, Gżira, Mosta) in catering (Marsaxlokk, Sirens), or are industry captains (Hibs’s Bezzina -Close to Konrad Mizzi), or with multi business interests (Floriana).
One should also keep in mind that in the recent past Gzira, Hamrun, Marsaxlokk and Floriana have all presented mega-commercial developments for their football stadia. Floriana, through ex-President Gauci, and Diane Izzo of Dizz, who is so close to Joseph and Michelle Muscat.
 Sirens and Mosta have also declared they want to commercialise their sporting facilities.
 By roping in Joseph Muscat, these clubs are hoping that they can go into a frenzy of building and commercial activity. Money and quick profit is their major scope.
Unfortunately, they have not realized that having as their frontman Joseph Muscat, a proven protector of political criminals and of an alleged assassin, will not only smear the image of Maltese football but will also continue to remind the rest of the world of the terrible international reputation the country has built for itself under Muscat.
Lovers of Maltese football and of Malta itself must unite to show one and all that the majority of the country is not driven by a craze for money and power  but by high ethical and moral standards.” said Cassola
