Muscat remains "the el- ephant in the room", ac- cording to one minister. The only discussion linked to the latest bout of political upheaval was limited to how the gov- ernment should react to what was described as the Opposition's attempts to "dest- abilise the country with protests", another minis- ter told MaltaToday. Both ministers chose to re- main anonymous to be able to speak liberally about internal matters. Several other MPs also spoke to to MaltaToday on con- dition of anonymity. A journalistic investigation last week revealed how Mus- cat had received payments for consultancy work from a Swiss firm that was pre- viously called VGH Europe. The Muscat problem: Labour ignoring 'the elephant in the room' maltatoday Labour ministers feel any decision to severe ties with Joseph Muscat is premature if done before hospitals inquiry is over JAMES DEBONO ROBERT Abela and the Labour Party regis- tered gains in the latest MaltaToday survey partly held in a tumultuous week domi- nated by damning revelations on the hospitals concession. The PL polled 33.1%, an in- crease of 2.3 points since March, while the Nationalist Party reg- istered 28.7%, an uptick of 0.3 points. The PL widened its lead over the PN from 2.4 points in March to 4.4 points now, translating in- to a gap of around 15,624 votes. But despite Labour's small gain over its worst ever poll result in March, the gap be- tween the two parties remains substantially less than it was in the last general election. The Prime Minister's trust rating now stands at 37.1%, an increase of 2.8 points since his worst result in March. Opposi- tion leader Bernard Grech has a trust rating of 25.5%, a slight dip of 0.6 points. The survey was held between Wednesday 10 May and Friday 19 May.
