It was less that a month ago when the Nationalist Party, gearing up for the general elections, launched its latest social media initiative 'Be Prime Minister for a day'.
Described as the largest crowdsourcing effort so far in Maltese politics, the initiative apparently worked as some 1,600 - according to the pmforaday blog - applied in hope to be the lucky contestant.
After having submitted their ideas and nominated their own members of Cabinet and MPs from their acquaintances, four finalists - a male and three females - have been chosen. But the winner this morning must pass the scrutiny of three judges - Chris Peregin from The Times, di-ve.com editor Chris Sultana, and Xarabank's Norman Vella - before being proclaimed Prime Minister for a day.
The four finalists are 56-year-old Antonia Borg Bonaci who suggested that sports should be given more priority and streets made safer; 18-year-old Darren Carabott who said that government should keep on working to better the financial income of citizens and improve their quality of life. Carabott also nominated a total of 103 persons from his friends to be ministers and MPs.
24-year-old Joanne Ellul Lanfranco proposed that a 24-hour medical treatment centre against eating disorders should be opened.
