In the aftermath of the St. Patrick’s Street Celebrations in St. Julian’s, Clean Malta embarked on a massive cleaning project, clearing 15 tonnes of waste in just four hours.

Minister for Tourism and Public Cleansing, Clayton Bartolo, took to social media to acknowledge the efforts of the Clean Malta team. In his recent post, he shared a few snaps of himself of the dedicated team prepared to tackle the challenge ahead, highlighting the scale and importance of their task.

Moreover, Bartolo, alongside Parliamentary Secretary for Public Cleansing Glenn Bedingfield, visited the site to witness the operation firsthand. This swift and efficient cleanup operation not only restored the area but also demonstrated the effectiveness of organised community efforts in addressing the aftermath of large-scale celebrations.

This year, St. Patrick’s Day in Malta saw tens of thousands of revellers take to the streets of St. Julian’s in green clothing to celebrate the annual event, which seems to be ever-growing in Malta.

Here’s Who Maltese Prefer For MEP Elections – Times of Malta

Roberta Metsola emerges as the favoured Maltese MEP candidate in a recent Times of Malta poll, anticipated to secure 19.9 percent of the vote, closely followed by Labour MEP Alex Agius Saliba at 19 percent.

While these two candidates are deemed certain to win MEP seats, others face a tight competition.

Notably, Joseph Muscat, although yet to confirm his candidacy, garnered 3.5 percent of preferences, with Norman Lowell of Imperium Europa at 2.5%.

However, a significant portion of voters (almost 46%) remain undecided. Among them, ADPD’s Sandra Gauci and independent Arnold Cassola secured minimal support at 0.2% and 1.2% respectively.

The survey, conducted by Esprimi, indicates a widening gap between Malta’s major parties, with Labour maintaining a lead. Interestingly, Labour voters express divided preferences, with significant support for Metsola despite party affiliations.

Conversely, Agius Saliba struggles to garner traction among PN voters. Gender and demographic disparities in candidate preferences emerge, with Agius Saliba slightly more favoured among older and male voters, while Metsola garners support among women and those with higher education levels.

Despite uncertainties, candidates from major parties maintain an advantage over third-party contenders, given voter tendencies to support their party’s list.
