UPDATED (4): Gap between PL and PN increases to 51,500

At about 4.00 p.m. the gap between the Labour Party and the Nationalist Party was being reported to be round 51,500, which amounts to a 19.7% difference.

Until early afternoon the gap was about 48,000, a figure given by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat during a rally in front of the National Labour Centre in Hamrun.

Earlier during the day it had been reported that the gap was between 54,000 and 45,000.

As soon as it was first announced that the gap stood at 54,000, Nationalist pundit Frank Portelli described this indication of the result as “a massive defeat” for the Nationalist Party.

This is not an official result, but an indication from samples collected so far, both from votes shown to agents behind the perspex and from votes being scanned.
