On the 7th January 2013, Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, advised H.E. The President of Malta, Dr George Abela, to dissolve the Maltese Parliament and call general elections for a new House of Representatives for the 9th March 2013.


The President of Malta, acting on the advice of the Prime Minister, issued the necessary Proclamations I and II, as well as the Writ to the Electoral Commission to hold General elections in all the 13 Districts of Malta.

LABOUR PARTY'S LANDSLIDE VICTORY IN 9TH MARCH 2013 GENERAL ELECTIONS

The Labour Party under the leadership of Dr Joseph Muscat has won a landslide victory over the Nationalist Party with 55% of the total vote. The Nationalist Party only succeeded in obtaining 43% of the vote. Early on Sunday 10th March 2013 at 11.36 a.m. the PN General Secretary Dr Paul Borg Olivier declared that the Labour Party had won the General Elections with a majority of about 37,000 votes which means about 7-9 additional Parliamentary Seats in the 12th Legislature.

Talk of a 36,000 majority, which would make it the biggest electoral victory in contemporary times by quite some distance.

Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi has conceded defeat and addressed a press conference to declare that the Labour Party has won the general elections.

Accompanied by his wife Michelle, his parents and close aides, Dr Joseph Muscat received the adulation of thousands of Labour supporters that thronged every inch of the Floriana Granaries to celebrate the Labour Party's historic landslide victory.

While promising that he will govern as he campaigned, by lending an ear to everyone, and to be of service for everyone, the Prime Minister-elect paid tribute to all those who believed in his project for Malta. "A new day has dawned on us all. We are a movement, and will remain a movement. No blue flag came down today, and no red flag was hoisted instead. We have all hoisted the Maltese flag," Muscat told the jubilant crowd.

Seemingly still shocked at the size of his victory, Dr. Muscat appeared for the first time in public with a plain clothes police escort, and unmarked security cars.
