Update 10 - Council elections: Indications show PN gained votes in Malta, Labour gained in Gozo but only Munxar has changed hands so far

18 April 2015 10:38:36 timesofmalta.com

Updated 10.10am The Nationalist Party made gains in nearly all local council elections held in Malta last week, Labour appears to have gained in Gozo, but four hours after vote-counting started this morning, only tiny Munxar has changed hands - from the PN to Labour. The Labour Party won its first ever majority in Munxar local council in Gozo while the PN appears to have held on to Siggiewi, which it was in danger of losing, according to early projections. PN Deputy leader Beppe Fenech Adami in comments to Net TV said Labour had won these elections by 17% in 2012. This time it appeared that the PN made some losses in Gozo but made gains in 20 localities including Zurrieq and Paola, both Labour strongholds. He cautioned, however, that the preliminary results in big localities such as Mosta and St Paul's Bay had not come in and it was still too early to make projections. Labour retained the majority in Gozo which it won at the last general election. It won Munxar by 53% of the vote to 42%, overturning a PN majority of the same margin. It also increased its majority in Qala and retained Xaghra. Nadur remained too close to call. The PN retained San Lawrenz (with long serving...

Bulgaria's Nedelino Has New Mayor as Court Removes Former Holder

18 April 2015 10:33:05 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

Rumen Rusanov from the Reformist Bloc (RB) became the new mayor of the Nedelino municipality in the region of Smolyan after his predecessor was removed from office. The municipal council of Nedelino elected Rusanov at an extraordinary meeting on Friday, the Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) reports. Ten out of thirteen municipal councilors were present, with eight of them voting in favour of Rusanov, while the remaining two abstained. The Plovdiv Appellate Court upheld on Thursday the decision for the removal of the former mayor Stoyan Beshirov, who had been charged with malfeasance in office . Beshirov was accused of failure to fulfill his duties and violation of the Public Procurement Act, which resulted in damages to the municipal budget amounting to nearly BGN 1 M. The deputy-mayor Fanka Georgieva, who had been appointed by Beshirov as interim, was also removed from office.

Floriana FC have filed a lawsuit against their former president Stephen Vaughan Jr and his father Stephen Vaughan Sr over unpaid monies.

Mqabba dash Stars’ play-off chances

18 April 2015 10:13:50 timesofmalta.com

Vittoriosa Stars 0 Mqabba 4 A below par Vittoriosa Stars saw their slim chances of a place in the play-off dashed after going down to Mqabba 4-0, last night. Surely, this was the worst defensive display by the Stars this season as Arturo Di Napoli’s side just failed to get going. Mqabba started on the offensive and after only four minutes Guedes de Freitas hit wide after doing well to unmark himself in the Stars’ box. Guy Tape headed badly from close range but Mqabba soon forged ahead when Malcolm Buttigieg failed to clear and Karl Cutajar pounced on the occasion to hit past keeper Magri. Leslie Burke’s side made it 2-0 on 15 minutes when after some sloppy defending Tape found space to ram the ball home. Mqabba could have made it 3-0 but Cutajar drove the ball just over the bar from just inside the area but just before half-time Brandon Grech darted through and placed the ball beyond the keeper’s reach for Mqabba’s third goal. The second half was a boring affair with Mqabba happy with their three-goal lead while Vittoriosa failing to at least put some sort of pressure on their opponents. The Stars had an opportunity to reduce the arrears 18 minutes from time but Michael...

This was done with the approval of the investors who also made the contacts to recruit these players.

Kaljevic leads Balzan to comfortable win

18 April 2015 10:13:50 timesofmalta.com

Qormi 1Effiong 68 penBalzan 5Kaljevic 1, 20; Piccioni 23, Serrano 41; Arab 89 Bojan Kaljevic took 20 minutes to decide the outcome of this match when he struck twice to help Balzan strengthen their hold on fourth place in the standings. With Floriana dropping precious points against Valletta, Balzan’s emphatic win over Qormi, which matured in the first half when Oliver Spiteri’s team struck four times, vindicated their aspirations for a possible berth in next season’s UEFA competitions. They extended their advantage over the Greens to seven points albeit the latter have a game in hand, against leaders Hibernians this afternoon. Those present had barely took their seat before Kaljevic scored one of the quickest Premier League goals this season – after just 47 seconds. Balzan attacked straight from kick-off and Montenegro striker Kaljevic, totally unmarked after running into space from midfield, slotted home from Terence Agius’s through pass. That goal set the tone for the match as Kaljevic ran with far greater confidence than any of his Qormi markers and Matthew Farrugia’s goal was breached again 19 minutes later. Lydon Micallef made a determined run down the right flank and...

As can be expected from a game that produced six goals, both Valletta and Sliema were guilty of some poor defending but there were also some outstanding attacking performances. Abdelkarim Nafti excelled for Valletta. His agility and trickery had Sliema in a tangle as the Tunisian winger capped a man-of-the-match display by scoring a goal and having a hand in the other two. In the blue corner, there was Pedrinho, another elusive player who also gave his opponents endless problems with his twisting runs and set-piece prowess. Valletta will be disappointed at their failure to gain maximum points as they looked to consolidate second place in the table but they did well to hit back after twice falling behind. The three changes in the Valletta...
