Reacting to the news that she will probably be elected on behalf of Partit Laburista, Cutajar said that she humbly accepts the result. According to Cutajar, the historic win for Partit Laburista shows that the electorate has acknowledged the work done by Partit Laburista and gave importance to the work done by the Prime Minister and PL leader Joseph Muscat. Cutajar further elaborated that with the results gained by the party, this will allow them to continue with their work at a European level.

Cutajar said that the process is nearing the end and that she will continue following closely. According to unofficial sources the result show that the gap between Partit Laburista and Partit Nazzjonalista is at 50,000 votes.
