Amer Abdelrazek – aka Am- er Barakat Zaky Abdel Razak – lost his status of subsidiary protection after losing a court case challenging the removal of his protection by the Inter- national Protection Agency (IPA). Subsidiary protection is an in- termediate form of protection for an asylum claimant, that is renewed periodically, only un- til conditions in their country of origin make it safe for them to return. PAGE 4 KURT SANSONE NON-VOTERS in MaltaTo- day's regular surveys are now ac- counting for 23.9%, an increase of 1.7 points over December, making them the second largest cohort after Labour voters. The increase follows a trend- line that has been steadily grow- ing, with just one dip, ever since the March 2022 elections. Support for the Labour Par- ty now stands at 38.7%, a two- point increase since December, as it reverses a downward trend, MaltaToday's first survey for 2023 shows. But the Nationalist Party scores 22.8%, a decrease of 1.4 points, while collective support for ADPD and other parties stands at 2.7%. The raw gap between the PL and the PN stands at 15.9 points. Without attributing vot- ing intentions to those who are unsure or who say they will not vote, this gap translates into a 56,461-vote difference.
