The Labour Party (Maltese: Partit Laburista, PL), formerly known as the Malta Labour Party (MLP), is a social-democratic political party in Malta. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_0

Along with the Nationalist Party (PN), the Labour Party is one of two major contemporary political parties in Malta. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_1

Since the March 2013 general election, the party has been the governing party in the Maltese House of Representatives. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_2

The Labour Party is a member of the Party of European Socialists, and was a member of the Socialist International until December 2014. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_3

The party is democratic socialist by constitution. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_4

Party structure Labour Party (Malta)_section_0

The Party structures are the General Conference, the National Executive, the Leader and the Deputy Leaders, the Party Congress, the Party Administration, the Parliamentary Group, the Councillors' Section, the District and the Regional Administrations, the Local Committees and the Branches. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_5

The General Conference is largely made up of delegates from the Party's other constituent structures and is the Party's highest organ. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_6

The National Executive brings together the Party Administration as well as elected representatives of other constituent structures and co-ordinators. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_7

The Party Congress is made up of all members of the Party and elects the Leader and the two Deputy Leaders (one for Party, the other for Parliamentary affairs) and determines the Party's broad policy outlines. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_8

The Party Administration is made of the Party Leader, Deputy Leaders and Party officials. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_9

The Parliamentary Group and the Councillors' Section bring together the Party's elected representatives in parliament and local councils. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_10

The Party is organised geographically in the local committees (smallest) and district and regional (largest) administrations. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_11

Finally, the Branches of the Party include the women's, youth, senior and candidates' sections. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_12

Media holdings Labour Party (Malta)_section_1

Although not formally part of the Party's structures, the PL owns a number of media and communication outlets. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_13

The party directly owns the Sunday weekly newspaper Kullħadd and through its holding company One Productions the party owns the television station One and radio service One Radio. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_14

History Labour Party (Malta)_section_2

Foundation, first years and first government (1921–1949) Labour Party (Malta)_section_3

The Labour Party was founded as the Chamber of Labour (Italian: Camera del Lavoro) in 1921 by one of the union branches affiliated with the Imperial Government Workers Union. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_15

Band clubs and other organisations were invited to send delegates to the Party's founding meeting on 15 March 1921, significantly, the 30th anniversary of Pope Leo XIII's Rerum novarum. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_16

Led by Colonel William Savona, the Party contested the general elections held in 1921 and 1924 under the new Constitution that gave the country a measure of self-government. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_17

The Labour-Constitutional alliance won the 1927 general elections, but Labour lost ground, gaining 13.9% of votes, three seats in the Legislative Assembly and no representation in the Senate. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_18

Strickland became Prime Minister. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_19

Labour leader Savona was not elected, and the leadership of the Labour parliamentary group was temporarily entrusted to Colonel Michael Dundon. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_20

The Presidency of the Party and leadership of the parliamentary group was taken up by Paul Boffa later that year. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_21

Labour gained nine seats out of ten in the elections held during November 1945, in which, contrarily to previous elections, all men over twenty-one years of age were entitled to vote. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_22

The Party's electoral programme, for the first time in Labour's history, did not make any reference to religion. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_23

Boffa's Government was supported by the General Workers' Union, and it carried out a number of reforms, such as the abolition of the Senate, the abolition of plural votes, as well as the introduction of women's right to vote. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_24

However, Labour deputies resigned from their posts in July 1946 due to mass redundancies at the Dockyards. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_25

In the meantime, the 'MacMichael Constitution' had been introduced, granting self-government to the Maltese. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_26

Labour's participation in the subsequent October 1947 elections was once again supported by the General Workers' Union. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_27

The Party won 59.9% of the vote and twenty-four seats out of the possible forty within the Legislative Assembly. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_28

Paul Boffa became Prime Minister whilst Dom Mintoff became Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Reconstruction. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_29

The Labour Government introduced Income Tax and Social Services for the first time in Malta. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_30

Re-founding and return to government (1949–1958) Labour Party (Malta)_section_4

The Labour Party was re-founded in 1949 as a successor to the Labour Party founded in 1921. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_31

Paul Boffa, Leader of the Labour Party and Prime Minister since 1947, resigned and left the party because of serious disagreements with his Deputy Dom Mintoff which had led to a series of cabinet crises. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_32

Boffa formed the Malta Workers Party (MWP) while Mintoff re-organized the Labour Party as the Malta Labour Party. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_33

The Malta Labour Party contested its first elections for the Malta Legislative Assembly the following year. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_34

The old Labour vote was split equally between the MLP and the MWP, giving them eleven members each. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_35

This allowed the Nationalist Party (PN) to have a slight edge in the formation of a government, which it did in coalition with the MWP. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_36

The government did not last long. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_37

Two other elections were held in 1951 and 1953 (the last time a coalition governed in Malta) which both saw short-lived PN-MWP coalitions and the decline in the share of votes to the MWP with increasing support for the Labour Party. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_38

The MWP eventually disintegrated and the MLP formed a government for the first time in 1955. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_39

This legislature was dominated by the issue of integration with the United Kingdom. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_40

The party, which started its life as an anti-colonial party with the slogan "Integration or self-determination" was now inclined towards the first part of the formula. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_41

A referendum was held in 1956 but given the number of abstentions and massive opposition by the Nationalist Party and the Catholic Church, the result was inconclusive. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_42

This, together with a number of dismissals at the naval dockyard led to Mintoff's resignation and his call for massive protests in April 1958. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_43

Opposition (1958-71) Labour Party (Malta)_section_5

The Governor re-established direct colonial government which lasted until 1962. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_44

In the meantime, the Malta Labour Party's connections with Third World Independentist and Socialist movements set it on a collision course with the Maltese Catholic Church, which the Party perceived as being pro-British and the cause of the failure of the Integration project. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_45

This led to the party leadership being interdicted from 1961 to 1964, when reading, advertising and distributing Party newspapers was deemed a mortal sin. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_46

In the 1962 elections this led to the defeat of the Party at the polls as well as a split with the creation of the Christian Workers' Party. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_47

Peace with the Church would not be made until 1969 by which time the Christian Workers' Party had disintegrated. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_48

The MLP participated in independence talks but disagreed with what was offered, causing them to not participate in the Independence celebrations when independence was actually achieved in 1964. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_49

The party made strong gains in the 1966 elections which, however, were not enough to see it in office. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_50

An unimportant split occurred in 1969 when the Communist Party of Malta was founded. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_51

This split happened as a result of the truce between the Malta Labour Party and local Catholic authorities. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_52

The Communist Party has since only contested the 1987 elections. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_53

The post-Independence Mintoff governments (1971-84) Labour Party (Malta)_section_6

Labour won the 1971 general election and immediately set out to re-negotiate the post-Independence military and financial agreements with the United Kingdom. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_54

The government also undertook socialist-style nationalization programmes, import substitution schemes, and the expansion of the public sector and the welfare state. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_55

Employment laws were revised with gender equality being introduced in salary pay. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_56

In the case of civil law, civil (non-religious) marriage was introduced and homosexuality and adultery were decriminalised. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_57

Through a package of constitutional reforms agreed to with the opposition party, Malta became a republic in 1974. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_58

The Labour Party was confirmed in office in the 1976 elections. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_59

In 1981 the Party managed to hold on to a parliamentary majority, even though the opposition Nationalist Party managed an absolute majority of more than 4000 votes. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_60

A serious political crisis ensued when Nationalist MPs refused to accept the electoral result and also refused to take their seats in parliament for the first years of the legislature. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_61

Premier Dom Mintoff called this action "perverse" but it was not an uncommon one in any parliamentary democracy with disputed election results. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_62

He proposed to his parliamentary group that fresh elections be held, but most members of his Parliamentary group rejected his proposal. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_63

Mintoff, who had been considering vacating the party leadership position even before the elections, voluntarily resigned as Prime Minister and Party leader in 1984 (although he retained his parliamentary seat). Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_64

A Party General Conference in that same year appointed Karmenu Mifsud Bonnici who acted uncontested as party leader. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_65

The post-Mintoff era (1984–92) Labour Party (Malta)_section_7

The Mifsud Bonnici years were characterised by political tensions and violence. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_66

The deadlock was broken when constitutional amendments were made voted and made effective in January 1987 which guaranteed that the party with an absolute majority of votes would be given a majority of parliamentary seats in order to govern. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_67

This paved the way for the return of the Nationalist Party to government later that year. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_68

The Labour Party performed very badly in the following election in 1992, losing by nearly 13,000 votes. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_69

Mifsud Bonnici resigned due to deteriorating health and on 26 March, Labour elected Alfred Sant as the new leader. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_70

Sant leadership and Modernisation (1992-2008) Labour Party (Malta)_section_8

Sant who won the election for party leader, and then modernized the party, secured a victory at the polls in 1996. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_71

Under Sant's leadership the party made several changes. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_72

The party opened the new Labour Party Headquarters in Hamrun instead of the old Macina in Cottonera. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_73

The party also made giant steps in the media by being the first Maltese political party to own its radio and television stations. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_74

Sant managed to win comfortably the 1996 elections held on 26 October by over 8,000 votes on the Nationalist Party. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_75

The 1987 constitutional amendments, which secured the necessary additional seats, had to be used for the second time, having been used for the same time in 1987. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_76

This same amendment had to be used a third time in 2008. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_77

However, trouble was brewing. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_78

Mintoff, for reasons known to him alone (within the MLP), started creating problems in Parliament for the one-seat Labour parliamentary majority. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_79

In the summer of 1998, Labour lost a division vote on the proposed Cottonera waterfront project because of Mintoff's renegation on his parliamentary group. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_80

This was considered by Prime Minister Sant as a vote of no confidence in his government, and informed the then-President of the Republic that he no longer held a parliamentary majority as a result. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_81

The President had on various occasions asked Prime Minister Alfred Sant to try to find a solution for the political crisis created, but when all attempts proved futile, he had no other option but to accept Sant and his government's resignation and a call for early elections, which were held on 5 September 1998. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_82

The Labour Party was defeated with a wide 13,000 vote margin. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_83

Back in opposition, the party campaigned unsuccessfully against EU membership, and the 'NO' camp lost the referendum for the ascension of Malta in the European Union on 8 March (although Sant claimed victory) and was again defeated in the general election a month later on 14 April 2003, once more with a 12,000 vote margin. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_84

Sant resigned, but stood again for party leader, where he was re-elected with more than 65% of the votes. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_85

In June 2004 the party succeeded in obtaining a relative majority of votes in the elections held to elect the first five Maltese MEPs for the European Parliament. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_86

The party elected 3 of his candidates: Joseph Muscat (later replaced by Glenn Bedingfield), John Attard Montalto and Louis Grech. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_87

In 2008 the Labour Party lost for the third consecutive time in the 2008 general elections, obtaining 48.79% share of the vote and losing the election to the Nationalist Party by just 1,580 votes or 0.5%. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_88

Following the loss of the election, Sant resigned as Labour Party leader on 10 March 2008. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_89

Muscat leadership (2008–2020) Labour Party (Malta)_section_9

The first round of the election of the new leader were held on 5 June 2008. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_90

Five members contested this election as candidates: George Abela (a former Deputy Leader), Evarist Bartolo (a frontbench MP and ex-Minister), Marie Louise Coleiro Preca (a frontbench MP and former Secretary-General of the Party), Michael Falzon (an MP and Deputy Leader of the Party) and Joseph Muscat (an MEP). Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_91

In the first round neither candidate obtained 50%+1 the majority of the votes. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_92

So a run up election had to be held on 6 June between the top two candidates who obtained the most votes, George Abela and Joseph Muscat. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_93

Muscat was elected Labour Party leader, gathering 66.36% of the total votes. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_94

He was co-opted in Parliament and appointed Leader of the Opposition on 1 October. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_95

During an Extraordinary General Conference, held in November 2008, it was decided that the party's official name would be Partit Laburista instead of its former English name, the Malta Labour Party. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_96

The previous emblem was changed, although the symbol of the torch was retained. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_97

In June 2009, the party garnered 55 percent of the first preference votes in the election for the European Parliament, electing 3 MEPs who sit with the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_98

This result led to Labour a fourth MEP when the Treaty of Lisbon came into effect and the number of seats allocated to Malta increased from five to six. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_99

Muscat managed to win comfortably the 2013 elections held on 9 March by over 35,000 votes on the Nationalist Party. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_100

The Labour Party won a massive 55% of the votes. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_101

In the 2014 MEP elections, the Labour Party retained a majority of 34,000 votes (53%), but lost its fourth seat to the Nationalist Party candidate Therese Comodini Cachia. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_102

In 2015, the party was delisted from the Socialist International for not paying membership fees. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_103

In 2017, Joseph Muscat was re-elected during the general election, with Labour appearing to win with a clear landslide victory for the second consecutive time, merely an hour after the vote counting commenced. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_104

Under Muscat's leadership Malta's national deficit was eliminated, unemployment decreased to historic lows, and an unprecedented period of economic growth occurred. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_105

However, he was criticised by figures on both sides of the political spectrum, accused of political opportunism, broken promises on meritocracy and the environment, as well as corruption allegations. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_106

On 1 December 2019, Muscat announced his resignation, to take effect after 12 January 2020, due to the 2019 Maltese protests caused by the murder of anti-corruption journalist and government critic Daphne Caruana Galizia. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_107

Muscat was accused of impeding the investigation. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_108

Robert Abela was elected to replace him, promising continuity with previous policies pursued by the party. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_109

As the party held a parliamentary majority at the time of Muscat's resignation, Abela would become Prime Minister immediately after. Labour Party (Malta)_sentence_110
