Vincent Paul[c]

General Elections were to be held in Melite on 27 February 2022 to elect Members of the Parliament of Melite, following the reform in the number of seats, through the pasing of the Districts Act of 2022,[1] increasing them from 4 to 16, permitting more political plurality. In total, four parties filled candidates in the general election. This election was held in the districts of Melite, and excluded Socialist Fgura. Interestingly enough, this was the first election in which no popular vote was required, as 16 candidates, the number needed to fill the Parliament, fielded themselves.

The former National Alliance Front coalition which totally controlled the Melitian Parliament was dissolved after the TT Party's dissolving. The Christian Nationalist Party managed not just to retain, but also to strengthen its majority, gaining another 4 seats in this election, increasing the total to 8, though still not enough to govern alone. The CNP, the Directionists and the Anarchists formed Coalition Government together, putting Melite Now! in opposition.
