Support for the PL stands at 47.3%, the PN at 43.1% and third parties collectively poll 9.6%. Robert Abela's trust rating stands at 37.5% while Bernard Grech is trusted by 21%. But the survey confirms widespread dis- gruntlement particularly among Labour voters, with the party losing 34% of its 2022 voters to abstention. Moreover, a relative ma- jority of voters trust neither leader. For the first time, the MaltaToday survey provides a breakdown of voting intentions and the trust barometer by income brackets. The breakdown suggests higher levels of disgruntlement with the political class among those earning between €1,000 and €3,000 a month. AN Opposition motion calling for independent MP Rosianne Cuta- jar to return money from a past consultancy has caused a stir in the PN parliamentary group. The parliamentary motion asks Cutajar to return money she was paid as a consultant to the CEO of the Institute of Tourism Studies (ITS) in 2019. A National Audit Office probe found her employ- ment to be irregular and fraudu- lent. Furore among PN MPs as Rosianne Cutajar motion reveals inconvenient truth Rosianne Cutajar €1.95 JAMES DEBONO
