Gap Between PL & PN In Local Councils Down To 20,255

Gap Between PL & PN In Local Councils Down To 20,255
Jun 15 2024 Share

Labour, although celebrating an overall win with a 52% majority and about 20,000 more votes, saw a significant decrease from their record 47,000-vote lead in 2019.

The Nationalist Party (PN) regained control of Mosta and Siġġiewi local councils and cut into Labour’s majority in other areas during Friday’s final vote count.

Recently, Labour’s lead in the MEP elections was also reduced to 8,400 votes.

Independent and third-party candidates gained traction, with ADPD’s Ralph Cassar and independents Conrad Borg Manche and Nigel Holland winning seats.

PN flipped Żebbuġ (Gozo) and gained a seat in Santa Luċija, traditionally Labour strongholds. Labour retained control in key areas but faced setbacks, such as the relocation debacle in Siġġiewi.

Long-serving mayors, including John Schembri of Luqa and John Boxall of Vittoriosa, were re-elected, while new political figures like Chris Deguara in Naxxar emerged.

In Floriana, independent candidates led to a hung council, showcasing a shift in voter dynamics. Despite challenges, Labour secured an additional seat in Kirkop and maintained its majority in several councils.

Notably, some of the tracks on the list were released well before Spotify compiled its predictions- they presumably made the playlist due to their proven popularity.

Which song will you be listening to all summer ?

Naxxar Lions FC unveiled their new logo during the club’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday.

Despite the club’s 1920 founding, the first known logo dates back to the 1940s and featured the letters N and L for Naxxar Lions. The club has had a variety of logos over the years, but as trends change, clubs are selecting less conventional and more contemporary brands and logos.

Naxxar Lions have proudly opted for this, giving their logo a modern look.

Whilst the logo is modern it retains the lion which has always been an essential element in all the logos, truly representing the club.

‘I thought I saw everything in 30 years on the road everyday.’

It is unclear what led to the coffin being driven on the car in such a way.
