Son of ex-president to be Malta’s next premier

A political newcomer, whose father was Malta’s president, has been chosen to be the country’s prime minister. Election results showed Robert Abela received nearly 58% of votes cast by members of the governing Labour Party eligible to choose the new leader. Abela, 42, will replace Joseph Muscat, who is stepping down amid demands for accountability over the 2017 murder of a journalist.
