Kurt Sansone crunches the numbers Voter apathy sees 21,500 voting documents uncollected PAGE 8 EDITORIAL The abstention election? PAGE 3 MATTHEW VELLA ADPD chairperson Carmel Ca- copardo has said the Green Par- ty will challenge Malta's elector- al law inside the Constitutional Court should the party achieve a national vote count equivalent to a quota. Cacopardo accused the Mal- tese electoral system of dis- criminating against third parties, by offering a propor- tionate number of seats to the parties whose candidates are individually elected in constit- uencies. Cacopardo however is insist- ing that should ADPD reach an overall national vote that is equivalent to the average quota for all elected seats, the party will be challenging the elector- al mechanism in court. "Should ADPD reach a na- tional vote count equivalent to a seat, I expect the party to have that seat. Because the rules as they stand are discriminatory, since the adjustment for pro- portionality only applies to two parties whose candidates are elected to the House," Caco- pardo said.
