Alternattiva Demokratika reiterated its commitment to ensure that Maltese lesbian, gay, bi and transsexual people would be treated as full citizens without exception, enjoying all rights and responsibilities as all other citizens.

In a meeting held upon request of the Malta Gay Rights Movement, AD spokesperson Angele Deguara said AD was pleased to announce that its manifesto met all six priorities identified by MGRM for the next legislature.

"We are also pleased to be raising the national bar in favour of marriage equality and the removal of discrimination in parenting and adoption legislation, thus ensuring that Maltese LGBT people are treated at a par with fellow LGBT people in modern European countries like Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden; and soon France and the United Kingdom," Deguara said.

Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson, said: "In parliament AD will ensure that LGBT issues are on the agenda. Alternattiva Demokratika is the only party that stands for real and uncompromised change for LGBT people. We are proud to support MGRM in this regard."
