Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

A MaltaToday survey has showed that embattled Partit Nazzjonalista leader Adrian Delia still enjoyed 56.8% of Nationalist members. The local newspaper obtained an anonymised list of party members that included their age, geographic distribution by electoral district and gender.

The survey which was carried out between 12 and 14 February was completed by 651 respondents when the embattled leader faced fresh calls for resignation after abysmal ratings at the polls.

A third of Partit Nazzjonalista members however, believe that Delia should resign. According to MaltaToday’s survey results the split shows Delia has a stronger support base among PN members in the southern district. However, the Tenth District which is a traditional PN stronghold showed that 55.9% of the members want Delia to resign. Similarly Delia only manages to gain relative majorities in his favour on the Eleventh and Twelfth district.

Delia enjoys more than 70% of the party members support in the Second, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth district.

According to the same survey, the biggest concern of the paid up members was the lack of unity, followed by “inadequate parliamentary group”. Only 4% are concerned with the party’s debt.
