Yesterday, unofficial results showed that PL had received over 50,000 votes more than the PN; however, according to the Election Commission statistics, the gap is actually that of 42,656 votes.
In all, PL received 141,267 votes (54.29%). Meanwhile, PN obtained 98,611 votes (37.90%). The third party that obtained the most votes was Imperium Europe, which had only one candidate, Norman Lowell who received a total of 8236 votes (3.17%).
Meanwhile, in a statement in response to the difference in official figures, the PN said that the result this year is one which is close to that of the last general election. The PN said that it welcomes the election result with humility and determination. The party pledged to strive to understand and represent the desires of the Maltese people.
