PD leader and candidate Godfrey Farrugia: We serve Malta before anyone else

PD leader Godfrey Farrugia, also an MEP candidate, augured for a substantial turnout that could give these elections the difference they merit: "We wish Malta luck, and PD has no loyalty to anyone other than Malta."

Alternattiva Demokratika chairperson Carmel Cacopardo voted at 2pm in Kalkara. Cacopardo, who is an MEP and local council candidate, said he expected "a reasonable result on the same lines of the past" in the European election and "good results" in local elections.
