Massive celebrations and carcades took place in the streets of Malta to celebrate a Landslide Victory by PL over the Nationalist Party which had been in power for the past 25 years. Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi had to call a General Election in November 2012 after loosing a one seat Parliamentary Majority in a vote on Budget. Malta went to the Polls on Saturday 9th March. No incidents were reported during voting in all localities. The Ballot reconciliation was over in a very short time and sorting of the votes commenced in the early hours of Sunday 10 March. First indications were a comfortable win for the Labor Movement PL under the leadership of Dr. Joseph Muscat. Later in the morning there was confirmation that PL had won the elections with a Landslide victory of 55% of valid votes cast. What this young and dynamic Dr. Muscat achieved is certainly historical since no other Political Party has ever enjoyed such a political advantage. This result will yield a 9 seat Parliamentary Majority.
