Remove Parliament Barriers Campaign Hits Nadur Carnival

Remove Parliament Barriers Campaign Hits Nadur Carnival
Feb 11 2024 Share

Amongst the costumes and floats during this year’s Nadur carnival, one particular showcase stuck out, echoing an ongoing push by MaltaDaily. 

A group of carnival goers built a parliament resembling structure, with a sign urging for the removal of the barriers from in front of parliament. 

Blending the lines between satire, political commentary and pure carnival craziness, the structure had an uncanny and impressive resemblance to Malta’s parliament.

Some carnival goers also staged a Parliament reshuffle in the streets of Nadur, equipped with a podium, tables and a camera crew. 

This comes as MaltaDaily campaigns to have the parliament barriers removed, with 684 signatures as of yet.

In the shared moments, Borg could be seen actively participating in the festivities, jamming with a tambourine to the joyous carnival tunes that filled the air.

Labour Leads PN by 15,000 Votes, Survey Reveals

Labour Leads PN by 15,000 Votes, Survey Reveals
Feb 11 2024 Share

Ahead of the upcoming MEP elections in June, the latest MaltaToday survey indicates that the Labour Party is currently leading by a substantial margin of 15,000 votes over the Nationalist Party (PN).

According to the survey findings, the Labour Party has successfully maintained a robust support level at 48%, while the PN lags at 41%.

The survey revealed a concerning potential for voter apathy, with an astonishing 37.5% of respondents declaring their intention not to participate in the forthcoming election. Should this sentiment be reflected in the actual voter turnout, it would mark the lowest participation rate in the history of MEP elections in Malta.

The trust barometer also provides insight into the leadership preferences among the Maltese population. Prime Minister Robert Abela has seen an increase in his trust ratings, now at 41.1%, further solidifying his lead over the opposition. In contrast, PN and Opposition leader Bernard Grech’s trust rating stands at a markedly lower 16.7%. This disparity in trust levels accentuates the challenges faced by the PN as it attempts to bridge the gap with the Labour Party.

Will you be voting in June’s MEP elections?
