Abstract: In an interview in Malta Today (May 2) Michael Falzon, PN candidate for the European Parliament, stated: "The hunters' candidate only has a very remote chance of getting elected. But hunters have to be aware that it is in the interest of Nationalist MEPs to preserve the derogation obtained during negotiations for the retention of Spring hunting, contrary to Alternattiva Demokratika, which wants to remove the derogation. "Hunters cannot kid themselves. With one MEP they will not be able to influence the situation. They will simply sit on the fringe. Hunters can get what they want only through the election of Nationalist MEPs." If this isn't clientelism par excellence? The MLP-PN duet has treated us to such pandering on more than one occasion and, after AD's call to voters to embrace the PN in the EU referendum debate, one would have expected some degree of reciprocity.
