dc.description.abstractOn 12 April, the Maltese voted to return the Nationalist Party (PN) to office in what was, by Maltese standards, another landslide victory over the Malta Labour Party (MLP). Although a margin in excess of four percentage points between these two parties has been achieved before, in 1992 and 1998, such a gap was not expected this time, as both parties braced themselves for a tortuous count and a photo finish, while the third party, Alternattiva Demokratika (AD), entertained high hopes of gaining at least one seat in parliament. Such forecasts stemmed from a general feeling that the PN had been in office for 16 years, discounting as but a slight interruption the hapless Labour administration of 1996–98.en_GB
