Labour popularity down one year from election victory

According to a new Times of Malta survey, the Labour Party has been dealt a significant hit in its popularity, dropping to one of the lowest ratings in years.

The hit did not however translate into a boost for the Nationalist Party as the lost votes have seemingly gone to third parties or outright abstentions. 

The survey comes one year after the Labour Party achieved a landslide victory. Despite this, were an election to be held tomorrow, only 51.6% reported to be voting Labour – the lowest registered rating since July 2021.

As for the Nationalist Party, the rating came at 42.9%, translating into a minor increase of 1.2%. This would make the difference between the two parties stand at 23,000 votes (8.7%)

Prime Minister Robert Abela too has experienced an all-time low trust rating with just under five out of 10. It also sunk among Labour voters, dropping from 8.1 last year to 6.8 today. 

Despite all this, he still registered more trust points than Opposition Leader Bernard Grech, whose trust rating dropped from 4.2 last year to 3.8 today. 

Former PL leader and prime minister Joseph Muscat too experienced a drop in preference. One third of respondents said they would opt for neither Abela nor Muscat. Last year, 30% said they preferred Muscat, whereas today, this has shrunk to 16%.

This means Robert Abela is still ahead as the preferred choice, with 50% of the vote in March 2023.

A new vocal group has recently emerged in Malta, with the aim of empowering all those who are silenced. Point Blank, composed of five young members, released their debut single titled SHOUT by Christina Magrin, which has already gained popularity in the local music scene.

Claudia Magrin, the vocal coach and manager of Point Blank, believes that the strength of this group lies in the diversity in personalities and voices of its members. Each member brings a unique skill to the group, with Aaliyah, Gianluca, and Thomas playing the piano, Norah being involved in dancing, Sophie being passionate about sketching and drama production, and Thomas playing water polo.
