TimesTalk on Tuesday discussed the situation, shown in recent polls, where a third of the electorate claimed they feel disenfranchised and have no confidence in Malta's two big parties.

Presented by Herman Grech and Mark Micallef, the programme's main guests were Salvu Mallia, Godfrey Grima and Frank Portelli. 

Watch a repeat of the programme above.
