Mr Francis Zammit Dimech, of the Maltese Nationalist Partiy (Partit Nazzjonalista, EPP), supported the AGE manifesto 2019:
‘I believe that the idea of Europe and our European project is to promote at all times a Europe that is for all ages. I support the AGE manifesto 2019, because we need to include the elderly in the social, cultural and democratic life of our society, while providing ample opportunities that promote active and healthy ageing, universal access to goods and services, and ensuring an adequate pension scheme for all.’Francis Zammit Dimech
