New government

April 29

On April 29, the government is reformed and several ministers replaced. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat takes over energy issues.

The government can handle a vote of no confidence

April 18

The opposition's proposal to issue a declaration of no confidence in the government is voted down by the numbers 38 to 31. The vote was held after the energy minister and a chief of staff of the prime minister were identified as belonging to the politicians and well-known people in many countries who were reportedly hiding money by hiring a law firm in Panama to open bank accounts in various tax havens. The information came out in the so-called Panama Papers, which an international network of digging journalists produced and published in April 2016 in various media around the world.
