Update: Today’s first count of votes in the 24th General Election indicate that Labour has won for a second consecutive time with a majority yet to be announced.
PN Leader Simon Busuttil in a tweet has said, “I have just called Joseph Muscat to concede. As always, we respect the decision of the electorate.”
Meanwhile, Joseph Muscat has urged Labour Party supporters across the islands to “celebrate responsibly.”
Carcades have already started around the Gozo celebrating this victory for Labour. Fireworks can also be heard going off across the island, making this Sunday sound just like a summer feast day.
The Labour Party Club in Independence Square Victoria, will be starting with their celebrations which will continue throughout the day, with large crowds expected to gather around the city.
