Jun 9 2024 Share

A house in Ħaż-Żebbuġ was spotted adorned in Labour Party flags and posters, with some depicting current prime minister Robert Abela as well as former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.

Seemingly ready to celebrate a victory for the Labour Party, the residents will have to wait for the vote counting to close as they kick off this Sunday morning.

Results are expected to be issued very soon, with a recent Times of Malta poll revealing that Labour has a 10.4 percentage point lead in the race.

Still, PN MEP Roberta Metsola remains a clear front runner in the race, with Labour’s Alex Agius Saliba following closely behind.

The bride herself hailed from Serbia and showed the tattoo to Kurt’s followers on Instagram in an adorable story video.
