IN a press conference held yesterday at the Alliance campaign headquarters, party leader Fabian Picardo revealed his parties promises leading up to the regions elections.

The main theme of the manifesto was Brexit and how the Liberal Alliance has put together a feasible plan for whatever the outcome may be come the 31st October.

On discussing his rivals’ policies, Picaro condemned the GSC and Together Gibraltar for only having Brexit plans for the sake of having plans.

Speaking on the GSD Leader Keith Azopardi “he has no plan for a hard Brexit and he has no plan for what happens if there is a withdrawal agreement.”

The Alliance manifesto details a four-year post Brexit National Economic Plan to restructure the economy and deal with a hard Brexit scenario.

GSLP candidate Sir Joe Bossano has predicted that the minimum rate of growth will be 2.5% in the first two years of the leadership with an increase to 5% for the following two years, set against an almost zero growth throughout the rest of Europe.

Also in the manifesto, Gibraltar’s environmental impact will receive a boost. The party proposes that it will encourage industries and public bodies to take note of their environmental impact on any new legislatures.

The rock will also receive a revamp, with a proposed new tourism infrastructure being planned turning the landmark into a complete leisure destination.

Facilities for events, wedding ceremonies and adventure facilities for children and young people including camping areas, zip lines and nature trails as well as a plan to turn the eastern side into a new Grand Parade Park.

New housing designed to ease the wait for new buyers, improved fire service facilities, increases in sentencing for sexual offenders and the construction of a new Naval and Historical museum were also proposed.

The Gibraltar general election to elect all 17 members to the 4th Gibraltar Parliament is scheduled to take place on Thursday 17 October.
