Local Councils poll 'only' election next March - PM

The elections for local elections in March will be the only elections that Malta will hold that month, the prime minister said yesterday.

He was referring indirectly to reports in a section of the media that he had been advised to call a general election in March.

Dr Gonzi was speaking at a reception for representatives of civil society at the Auberge de Castille.

This will be the first time that elections will be held for half of local councils. Elections previously used to be held every year for a third of the councils.
