A total of 21,499 paid-up members of the Nationalist Party have been deemed eligible to vote in the party’s upcoming leadership election, which will pit embattled leader Adrian Delia against Bernard Grech.

The figure was confirmed by the party’s electoral commission, which said that it had concluded a verification exercise.

The election is set to take place on October 3, with the electoral commission recently rejecting a request by deputy leader Robert Arrigo to postpone it in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

But early voting is set to take place on 25, 26 and 30 September, as well as on 1 and 2 October.
