Op-ed columnist and historian Dr Simon Mercieca said that he was not surprised by today’s result, saying that he thought the PN would do even worse.
Speaking on TVM, Dr Mercieca said that the discontent within the Nationalist Party is considerable, adding that this might be one of the reasons which is leading to this result.
He said that with this result, the PL should win the next general elections. He said that PM Joseph Muscat is so powerful that whatever he does, he is still winning and he believes that the PL will remain in Government until the year 2027.
