Robert Abela will this afternoon deliver his first speech as Labour Leader and Prime Minister elect.
Abela won the Labour leadership election on Saturday, beating Deputy PM Chris Fearne. Abela obtained 9,342 votes, or 57.9%, to Fearne’s 6,798.
He will be sworn in as Prime Minister on Monday, replacing Joseph Muscat, who stepped down in the wake of the recent developments in the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder case.
Abela will be making his speech at the Corradino sports pavilion, where Muscat delivered his last public address on Friday.
