Robert Abela elected - Four former presidents' sons may make it to the House

Robert Abela, son of former President George Abela, has been elected to the House of Representatives, raising the likelihood that four former presidents' sons will sit in the Chamber in the new legislature.

Dr Abela was elected from the sixth district which includes his father's hometown Qormi. 

Also elected so far are Mario de Marco and Beppe Fenech Adami, both former president's sons.

Carm Mifsud Bonnici could also make it, although in his case things are not certain yet.

Il-Kap tal-Partit Nazzjonalista Simon Busuttil ħabbar li se jirriżenja mill-Partit Nazzjonalista, flimkien mat-tim tat-tmexxija tal-PN, li jinkludu l-Viċi Kapijiet Beppe Fenech Adami u Mario De Marco, il-President Eżekuttiv tal-Kunsill Ġenerali Paula Mifsud Bonnici, is-Segretarju Ġenerali tal-PN Rosette Thake, il-President Eżekuttiv Ann Fenech u l-President tal-Kunsill Amministrattiv Karol Aquilina. 

Waqt konferenza tal-aħbarijiet fid-Dar Ċentrali, Simon Busuttil stqarr li qed jerfgħu r-responsabbiltà sħiħa tar-riżultat u li ħadd minnhom mhu se jerġa' jikkontesta l-kariga.  

Madanakollu qal li għadu ma ddeċidiex dwar jekk hux se jirriżenja mill-Parlament. 

Simon Busuttil spjega mill-ġdid li l-Partit irid jibda proċess sabiex jieħu rendikont tar-riżultat, u proċess biex tiġi eletta tmexxija ġdida.

Dr Busuttil semma kif din il-ġimgħa se jiltaqa' mal-attivisti tal-partit. Se jsejjaħ ukoll laqgħa tal-Kumitat Eżekuttiv aktar tard din il-ġimgħa, wara li jiġi konkluż l-għadd tal-voti, sabiex japprova l-proċedura u d-dati li fihom se jsiru l-elezzjonijiet tat-tmexxija l-ġdida tal-partit.

Fakkar kif wara l-bidliet li saru fl-istatut fl-2014, il-Kap u Viċi-Kapijiet ġodda jridu jinħatru minn proċess fejn għall-ewwel darba, se jkunu t-t-tesserati tal-partit li jagħżluhom. 

Żied jgħid li se jibqa' jservi ta' Kap tal-Oppożizzjoni, sakemm il-Kap ġdid tal-Partit jieħu l-kariga tiegħu minfloku.

Simon Busuttil qal li r-riżultat elettorali hu dak li hu u li l-Partit Nazzjonalista, b’dinjità u b’maturità, jirrispetta l-verdett tal-poplu, kif dejjem għamel. Qal ukoll li għad għandu l-fiduċja li kellu fil-poplu Malti.

Stqarr li jħossu kburi li matul il-kampanja elettorali, il-Partit Nazzjonalista rnexxielu jwassal messaġġ ta’ tama li hemm mod ieħor kif issir il-politika f’Malta: b’governanza tajba, istituzzjonijiet indipendenti u li s-sistema politika titnaddaf qabel ma jkun tard wisq.

Dr Busuttil qal li hu kburi wkoll li l-messaġġ tal-PN kien mibni fuq il-valuri tal-onestà u l-integrità, u li se jħalli warajh partit organizzat tajjeb u li ġġieled kampanja elettorali tajba.

Lill-135,000 persuna li vvutaw għall-Partit Nazzjonalista, Simon Busuttil appellalhom biex f’dan il-mument diffiċli, iżommu d-dinjità tagħhom u jkunu sodi għal dak li emmnu fih. Irrimarka li l-partit irnexxielu joħloq xi ħaġa speċjali, li waslet biex numru kbir ta’ nies jibdew jemmnu fil-kawża tal-PN u li bdew jemmnu fil-fjamma li nxtegħlet.

Żied jgħid li għalkemm jinsabu f’minoranza, jibqgħu minoranza importanti fil-pajjiż u li l-PN se jibqa’ jagħtihom vuċi b’saħħitha filwaqt li jirrappreżenta dak li jemmnu fih.

Simon Busuttil temm il-messaġġ tar-riżenja, billi rringrazzja lil dawk kollha li nhar is-Sibt taw il-fiduċja tagħhom lill-Forza Nazzjonali, lill-kandidati infushom, kif ukoll lil Kap tal-Partit Demokratiku Marlene Farrugia.

“Fuq nota aktar peronsali, irrid ngħid li kien ta’ privileġġ kbir għalija li mmexxi dan il-partit glorjuż u se nibqa’ ngħożż l-esperjenza sabiħa tal-aħħar erba’ snin tul ħajti kollha”, temm jgħid Dr Busuttil.

Stqarr li se jħalli l-kariga tiegħu b’kuxjenza nadifa, li matul l-aħħar erba’ snin ta kull ma seta’, u li ma kien hemm assolutament xejn, x'seta’ jagħmel iktar.

Check which candidates have been elected so far

16 MPs elected on 1st count from 13 districts, Former president's son Robert Abela also elected

District 1

In District 1, the Labour Party's Jose Herrera (4,630) and Nationalist deputy leader Mario de Marco (4,721) secured the first two seats. Newcomer Aaron Farrugia secured Labour's second seat while the PN's second seat went to Claudio Grech. Deo Debattista is expected to take the remaining seat.

Click here to understand how the single transferable vote works:

District 2

In District 2, PL leader Joseph Muscat garnered a record 14,674 votes and is head and shoulders above his district rivals, none of whom have reached four figures yet. PN incumbent Stephen Spiteri's 4,671 first count votes sees him elected.

District 3

After 20 counts, only Chris Fearne was elected from the third district by 10.30pm. Carmelo Abela is doing well for Labour, as is newcomer Silvio Grixti who is ahead of ministers Helena Dalli and Owen Bonnici. Mario Galea and Stephen Spiteri lead for the PN.

District 4

Labour's Chris Fearne and Konrad Mizzi have already secured their seat in parliament, along with Silvio Parnis, with Jason Azzopardi currently doing the best among PN candidates.

District 5

Joseph Muscat practically repeated his district 2 dominance in the fifth district, garnering 12,886 first count votes - practically half of the district's vote total. Julia Farrugia inherited the biggest number of the prime minister's votes, followed by Owen Bonnici and Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi.

The PN's Toni Bezzina, with 2,847 votes, is the closest candidate.

District 6

In the sixth district, Robert Abela, the former President's son, has been elected for Labour, joining Silvio Schembri (PL) who was elected first. Roderick Galdes was also re-elected for Labour. Ryan Callus and Clyde Puli were re-elected for the Nationalist Party.  

District 7

Ian Borg (PL) is far ahead of every other candidate in the seventh district and is the only candidate elected from there so far. Edward Scicluna (PL) and Beppe Fenech Adami (PN) are second and third so far. Other candidates in the running include Jean Pierre Debono (PN), Silvio Schembri (PL), Antoine Borg (PN), Sam Abela (PN) and Godfrey Farrugia (PD).

District 8

Beppe Fenech Adami (PN) is leading the district 8 count and has been elected with 6,484 first count votes. Edward Scicluna, Chris Cardona and Edward Zammit Lewis lead the PL spots, while the PN's Therese Comodini Cachia and David Agius look best place to secure seats in subsequent counting rounds.

District 9

The PN's Kristy Debono was quickly elected on the ninth district. Robert Arrigo is expected to be elected from this district as well. Clifton Grima, the former Msida Mayor, leads the Labour list. 

District 10

In District 10, Robert Arrigo (PN) has secured his MP spot with 4,793 votes. Evarist Bartolo, Michael Falzon and Manuel Mallia lead PL list, while PN candidates Karl Gouder, George Pullicino, Nick Refalo and PD leader Marlene Farrugia are all well placed to compete for a seat in parliament.

District 11

PN leader Simon Busuttil received practically half of all votes cast in the 11th district, getting 11,266 first count votes. David Agius was the first to be elected from the inherited votes.  For PL. Anthony Agius Decelis, Alex Muscat and Chris Cardona have all tallied a healthy number of first count votes.

District 12

Dr Busuttil is also the only candidate to secure a seat on District 12 so far, with Robert Cutajar the only other PN candidate to hit four figures on the first count.

Michael Farrugia, Evarist Bartolo and Deborah Schembri are leading the PL pack.

District 13

Among candidates in the district, Anton Refalo (PL) and Chris Said (PN) were elected on the first count, followed after 15 counts by Marthese Portelli for the Nationalist Party. She effectively inherited the seat vacated by Giovanna Debono, who did not seek re-election. Labour is expected to win three seats in Gozo. With one having gone to Anton Refalo, the others are expected to go to Justyne Caruana and Clint Camilleri.

The process

MPs who get more than the quota for that district are elected on the first count.

In 2013, 12 of the 65 seats were filled on the first count: Joseph Muscat, Anton Refalo, Louis Grech, Owen Bonnici, Karmenu Vella, Marie Louise Coleiro-Preca for the Labour Party, and Lawrence Gonzi, Simon Busuttil, Beppe Fenech Adami, George Pullicino, Tonio Fenech and Giovanna Debono for the Nationalist Party.

The painful part of the process is transferring excess votes once a candidate has been elected. These are manually transferred and then, on each count, the candidate with the least votes is dropped and their votes are transferred to the next candidate.

With the number of votes transferred at each count going down as each candidate is eliminated from the race, the process becomes painfully slow.

This could change in the future as the intention is for ballot papers to be sorted and counting electronically.

Gozo tends to be the fastest to conclude all five MPs because it tends to have fewer candidates (21 this year). But the 9th District drags on for days: it took 22 counts to finalise all the MPs in 2013 and 2003, and 25 counts in 1998 and 2008.

Il-Partit Laburista jirbaħ l-elezzjoni ġenerali, Simon Busuttil jaċċetta t-telfa

Il-Prim Ministru stqarr ma’ TVM li l l-poplu għażel li jkompli jimxi ’l quddiem u l-għajta ta’ Malta tagħna lkoll se kun lejn l-aqwa żminijiet.

Dan wara li l-Kap tal-Komunikazzjoni tal-Gvern Kurt Farrugia qal li l-Partit Laburista rebaħ l-elezzjoni ġenerali u b’hekk il-poplu reġa’ ġedded il-mandat lill-Prim Ministru Joseph Muscat għal ħames snin. Ir-riżultat tħabbar wara siegħa u nofs li beda jsir is-sorting. Riżultati mhux uffiċċjali juru li l-PL rebaħ  b'55.2% filwaqt li l-Partit Nazzjonalista flimkien mal-Partit Demokratiku ġabu 43.5%.

Dr Muscat qal li l-ewwel prijorità tal-Gvern se tkun li jara li l-pajjiż ikompli miexi ‘l quddiem. Huwa qal li se jestendi l-id tal-ħbiberija u dak li nkiseb f’dawn l-aħħar erba’ snin mhu xejn imqabbel minn dak li se jikseb il-pajjiż fi żmien li ġej.

Hu stqarr li d-distakk huwa konsiderevoli u l-poplu għażel il-pożittività mill-attakk bla preċedent fuq il-familja tiegħu.

Dr Muscat sostna li r-riżultat tal-lum juri li l-Partit Laburista huwa partit tas-south daqs kemm hu tan-north, partit tal-ħaddiem daqs kemm hu partit tan-negozjant, partit taż-żgħażagħ daqs kemm hu partit tal-anzjani.

“Huwa ċar li l-PL illum huwa partit tal-oqsma kollha, u mhux ta’ xi wieħed partikulari”, kompla Dr Muscat.

Saħaq li l-poplu reġa’ tkellem bl-istess vuċi li tkellem fl-2013, għalkemm irrimarka li mhux bilfors kull min ivvota dakinhar reġa’ vvota lbieraħ.

Mistoqsi dwar ir-riżultat, Dr Muscat qal li għalkemm ma kienx qed jistenna distakk bħal dan, is-sondaġġi li kienet qed tagħmel il-midja Laburista kienu qed juru distakk ta’ 9%, li kienu bejn wieħed u ieħor korretti.

“Jien naħdem ma’ kull min irid jaħdem miegħi. Dan il-moviment ma jismux ‘Joseph Muscat’, iżda dan huwa tim u kunċett ta’ kif naħdmu biex niksbu”, insista Dr Muscat.

Huwa fakkar li din kienet l-ewwel darba li l-PL rebaħ żewġ elezzjonijiet konsekuttivi b’distakk sostanzjali.

Min-naħa tiegħu, il-Kap tal-Oppożizzjoni fi tweet, qal li ċempel lill-Prim Ministru biex jikkonċedi t-telfa u li l-Partit Nazzjonalista kien se jirrispetta l-verdett tal-poplu.

Il-Prim Ministru Joseph Muscat irringrazzja lil Simon Busuttil tal-awgurju tiegħu. 

Intant, iż-żewġ Viċi-kapijiet tal-Partit Nazzjonalista Dr Beppe Fenech Adami u Dr Mario de Marco tkellmu mis-sala tal-għadd tal-voti u jikkonċedew it-telfa u jirringrazzjaw lil poplu Malti għal mod kif mexxa f’dawn l-elezzjonijiet. Min-naħa tiegħu, Dr de Marco qal li l-kwistonijiet li tqanqlu fil-kampanja elettorali jibqgħu relevanti.  

Fit-3pm il-Prim Ministru se jindirizza attività politika quddiem iċ-Ċentru Nazzjonali tal-Partit Laburista. 

It-turnout f’din l-elezzjoni ġenerali kien ta’ 92%.

Reazzjonijiet minn politiċi

Il-Kap tal-Partit Demokratiku sosniet li minkejja li ma kinitx taħseb li l-poplu se jivvota għal partit korrott, xorta hemm dawk li għażlu Malta u se jibqgħu jirsistu kemm mill-Parlament kif ukoll minn barra sabiex ikun hawn gvern nadif.

Michael Briguglio, li fil-kampanja elettorali kien parti mill-Forza Nazzjonali, qal fuq Facebook li jixtieq jirringrazzja lil Simon Busuttil li ta tama lil ħafna nies, fosthom lilu, u talli kien kap ta' oppożizzjoni fl-agħar mumenti tagħha. Awgura li aktar nies isiru jafu lil Busuttil. Finalment irringrazzja lill-armata ta' nies li ħadmu minn wara l-lenti f'din l-elezzjoni ġenrali.

Il-Kap tal-Partit Nazzjonalista Simon Busuttil saħaq li “l-Partit Nazzjonalista se jiddiskuti r-riżultat tal-elezzjoni u jsir dak li hemm bżonn fl-interess tal-partit u tal-pajjiż”. Stqarr li dan sabiex jerġa’ jkun oppożizzjoni f’saħħitha.

Waqt intervista fuq Net TV, filwaqt li qal li l-PN ibaxxi rasu u jaċċetta l-verdett tal-poplu Malti, saħaq li hu kburi li matul il-kampanja, il-Forza Nazzjonali rrappreżentat il-valuri tas-sewwa u l-verità li temmen fihom.

Tenna kemm-il darba li l-Forza Nazzjonali xegħlet fjamma ta’ tama ta’ dak li temmen fih.  Saħaq li din il-fjamma għandha tinżamm ħajja.

Simon Busuttil irringrazzja lil dawk li poġġew il-fiduċja tagħhom fil-Forza Nazzjonali, lill-kandidati li taw sehem u sagrifiċċju, dawk li ħadmu wara l-kwinti, il-ħaddiema u l-voluntiera tal-PN.

Irringrazzja wkoll lil dawk li kienu tant viċin tiegħu fosthom il-familja, il-ġenituri, uliedu u Kristina. 

 

District by district – how the candidates are faring

Both Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and PN Leader Simon Busuttil were far ahead in their respective districts, and many well-known politicians were on their way to being elected as at 9pm last night.

During the time of writing, the official number of first count votes had not yet been delivered.

With the election result announced relatively early after sample votes indicated that the Labour Party had won by a substantial margin, believed to be 35,000, attention now turns to the candidates themselves, with exciting battles emerging on a number of districts, particulary the 2nd, 5th, 7th, 10th and 13th Districts.

District 1

In the 1st District, PN Deputy Leader Mario de Marco and Environment Minister Jose' Herrera have ran ahead of the pack and both lead with what appears to be a sizeable margin.

Following the pair it looks like PL Candidate Aaron Farrugia is behind them

MPs Silvio Parnis,Paula Mifsud Bonnici Luciano Busuttil, Deo Debattista, and Claudio Grech appear to be doing decently.

District 2

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat is, unsuprsingly, in the lead by a huge margin and will be elected on the first count. From the PN side, MP Stephen Spiteri is doing extremely well with what looks like a large number of first count votes.

Minister Helena Dalli, Minister Joe Mizzi are also doing notably well in this district.

PN candidate Josie Muscat also performed well in the district.

District 3

In the third, Ministers Carmelo Abela and Chris Fearne have surged ahead of the rest of the pack, while PL Candidate Silvio Grixti, Minister Owen Bonnici and PN Candidate Mario Galea are following.

For the PN, Carmelo Mifsud Bonnici seemed to be doing well.

District 4

Minister without Portfolio Konrad Mizzi, in spite of the number of controversies he has faced, has performed exceptionally well in the district, however it appears that Minister Fearne has received slightly more first preference votes. It is highly likely that both will be re-elected.

For PL, Silvio Paris has also performed well, while for the PN, Jason Azzopardi has received a large number of votes.

District 5

The fifth has seen PM Joseph Muscat once again receive a substantial number of votes, with Minister Bonnici, Mr Glenn Bedingfield, and Julia Farrugia Portelli seemingly hopeful that they will receive a large number of second and third preferential votes.

PN's Anthony Bezzina has received a large amount of first preference votes, and currently is only behind Dr Muscat.

PD Leader Marlene Farrugia has performed well in her home district, however it appears that Herman Schiavone is also doing well.

District 6

The sixth, has seen PL's Roberta Abela and Silvio Schembri, and PN's Ryan Callus receive a large number of first preferential votes.

PL's Roderick Galdes, Rosianne Cutajar, and Ian Borg are also performing well.

District 7

The former Labour Whip and Health Minister Godfrey Farrugia was performing well on the seventh district after joining PD, however he faces stiff competition with Jean Pierre Debono, Beppe Fenech Adami, Ian Borg, and Minister Edward Scicluna all currently performing quite well.

Parliamentary secretary Ian Borg is leading the pack, followed by Profs Scicluna.

PN's Sam Abela also has a good number of votes.

Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando, while receiving some first preference votes, seems unlikely to get elected.

District 8

In district 8, PN Deputy Leader Beppe Fenech Adami, PL Deputy Leader and Minister Chris Cardona, Profs Scicluna, and Minister Edward Zammit Lewi are leading.

PN MEP Therese Comodini Cachia is also doing well and so is Minister Manuel Mallia.

District 9

In the ninth, Kirsty Debono is in the lead by a large margin.

Following her, it appears, are PL's Michael Falzon, and Minister Edward Zammit Lewis.

Other candidates doing well include Clifton Grima, Minister Manuel Mallia, Robert Arrigo and Marthese Portelli appear to be close at the moment.

District 10

PL Ministers Evarist Bartolo and Michael Falzon all appear to be doing well, so is Manuel Mallia.

From the PN side Robert Arrigo are all doing very well. PD Leader Marlene Farrugia appears to have done well in the 10th District, as it appears she is slightly ahead on George Pullicino, Francis Zammit Dimech, PN new comer Nick Refalo also garnered a surprising amount of first count votes for a first-timer.

District 11

PN Leader Simon Busuttil is leading the pack on the Nationalist side.

Minister Chris Cardona is doing quite well, so is Minister Michael Farrugia and PL candidates while Alex Muscat and Parliamentary Secretary Deborah Schembri.

It is important to note that while a number of PN candidates did not received substantial first preference votes, a majority of them will benefit from the other preferential votes on the PN Leader's ticket.

District 12

The 12th has seen Salvu Mallia perform very poorly, as has David Thake and Claudette Buttigieg,

Simon Busuttil and Minister Michael Farrugia have performed well in the district.

PN MP Robert Cutajar is also doing well. Clayton Bartolo, Evarist Bartolo, and Deborah Schembri are also looking quite good.

District 13

In spite the PN's personalised manifesto for Gozo, which is a traditionally nationalist district, 52% of Gozitans voted for PL.

The Labour Party will now retain the three seats it received in 2013's general election.

Minister for Gozo Anton Refalo and PN MP Chris Said have garnered a large amount of first count votes, so did Parliamentary Secretary Justyne Caruana. Other candidates who garnered a good number of votes are PL's Clint Camilleri and PN's Marthese Portelli, Frederick Azzopardi and Kevin Cutajar

PN says Electoral Commission fails to take action against PL candidates advertising today

Despite its obligations, the Electoral Commission has failed to act in its constitutional role to assure a level playingfield during the day of reflection, the PN has said in a statement.

“Despite that no candidate or political party can use public methods to send their message today, a number of PL candidates chose to continue doing this through sponsored Facebook posts. The Commission was informed of this early this morning however chose to close its eyes and allow PL candidates to continue disseminating their message on the day of silence.”
