Malta’s Labour Party wins landslide election victory

The Labour Party in Malta won a landslide victory in a general election on Saturday, according to local media.

“The indications clearly show the Labour Party has won an outright majority. We are humbled by the result,” Prime Minister Robert Abela told broadcaster PBS.

The leader of the opposition Nationalist Party, Bernard Grech, called Abela to concede defeat, the Times of Malta reported.

This will be Labour’s third successive win, putting it on course for another five years in power. Some 85 percent of people eligible to vote turned up, the lowest number in a general election since the island’s independence
