Since Malta joined the European Union in 2004, Labour has comfortably won all three elections held for MEPs. 2019 is shaping up to be a repetition of previous years. With the odds in their favour, Labour is looking likely to obtain the majority of the votes once again.
The Labour Party will be fielding 14 candidates, the largest amount since the MEP elections started 15 years ago, while the Nationalist Party have confirmed nine candidates and are widely expected to lose one of their seats in May.
Labour representative Miriam Dalli and Nationalist representative Roberta Metsola have emerged as the two front runners of the 2019 European Parliament election.
Former journalist Dr Dalli has been serving as a Member of the European Parliament for almost five years on behalf of the Labour Party. She is currently a political coordinator in the committee on Environment, Health and Food Safety, and her campaign is focused on maintaining solidarity and national interest in Malta. The MEP runner continues to invite citizens to participate in order to put their own priorities at the forefront, with her campaign focused on taxation, the education system, innovation, and irregular migration.
Roberta Metsola, lawyer, and one of Malta’s first female members of the European Parliament has been representing the Nationalist Party for almost six years. Her campaign focuses on giving more attention to migration, leading the digital agenda, ensuring Gozo’s status as a region, providing funding that is accessible, and protecting the rule of law across the EU. Her goal is to implement a system to eradicate the one-size-fits-all approach so prevalent across the EU policy spectrum.
