Apr 4 2024 Share

In Valletta, preparations are underway for the Presidential Oath of Office ceremony, where Myriam Spiteri Debono, a notary and former parliamentary speaker, is set to become the 11th President of Malta.

This transition sees her taking the reins from George Vella, the outgoing President. The capital buzzes with activity as logistical arrangements are being made to facilitate the event.

Her nomination by both the Prime Minister and the Opposition leader overcame what seemed an insurmountable hurdle due to the requirement of a two-thirds parliamentary majority for appointment.
Spiteri Debono, a figure deeply rooted in Labour’s history, has had a diverse career spanning notarial work, education, and key administrative roles.
As the first woman Speaker of the House of Representatives, she managed a challenging period with a focus on unity and respect for investigative journalism, highlighted by her tribute to journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. Praised for her dedication to national unity and constitutional knowledge, both Malta’s Prime Minister and Opposition leader welcomed Spiteri Debono’s suitability for the presidency.
