This vote will determine six Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and local council teams for the next five years.

Polling stations will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and the results for the MEP elections are expected tomorrow morning. The European Parliament’s total number of MEPs will increase from 705 to 720 after this election due to additional seats allocated to twelve countries following the UK’s exit from the EU.

Thirty-nine local candidates are contesting the European Parliament seats, including nine from the Labour Party, eight from the Nationalist Party, and a record number of 13 independent candidates, along with representatives from smaller parties. Among the candidates are three current MEPs: Roberta Metsola, David Casa (both PN), and Alex Agius Saliba (PL), as well as former MEP Claudette Abela Baldacchino (PL). Amongst others David Casa is also on the ticket, noted for being Malta’s longest-serving MEP.
