Newly-elected Nationalist Party Leader Bernard Grech will be contesting the 5th and 11th electoral districts in what will be his first general election. 

The fifth district consists of Birżebbuġa, Kirskop, Imqabba, Ħal-Farruġ (Luqa), Qrendi, Safi and Bubaqra (Żurrieq) whereas the 11th district consists of Mdina, Attard, Mosta and Burmarrad (St. Paul’s Bay). 

The fifth district is largely considered as a ‘Labour Area’ with the Labour Party winning with more than 65% of the vote whereas the 11th district is what is considered a ‘stronghold’ for the Nationalist party, where it won more than 55% of the vote in the last general election.
