Elections

Malta heads to the polls in March

Malta will hold a general election in March, according to reports.

Prime Minister Robert Abela on Sunday asked the country’s president to dissolve parliament to trigger a national vote on March 26.

“We can now look ahead with optimism. We have to see how to create more opportunities than ever before, now that the pandemic uncertainty is behind us,” Abela said at a political event, according to the Times of Malta.

Polls suggest Abela’s Labour Party is on track to win a third term in office.

Abela took over as prime minister in early 2020 following the resignation of fellow Labour prime minister, Joseph Muscat, amid criticism of the government’s handling of the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
