Abstract: 60 years ago, George Borg Olivier was at the helm of the Nationalist party, facing numerous foes within while trying to battle fiery Labour leader Dom Mintoff and the British colonial administration. But according to Christopher Scicluna, the best-known political split occurred 70 years ago within the Labour Party, when Dom Mintoff managed to oust veteran leader Paul Boffa. Mr Mintoff was to cause another split in the Labour Party in 1998 when he broke ranks with prime minister Alfred Sant.
