Today Saturday the local council votes were counted and results were announced by the DOI. Malta voted last Saturday in a Spring Hunting Referendum and Local Councils elections for a number of localities.
The PM announced a PL (Labour Party) win of 54% (as opposed to 57% of four years ago) while PN (Nationalist Party) reduced the gap from 17% to 9%.
AD (Alternattiva Demokratika) was satisfied with its slight increase in votes in four localities and may retain its mayor in Attard.
Counting in Dingli concluded after a vote mixup was solved.
Overall counting still proceeds.
