Malta's score on the 2023 Corruption Perceptions Index is 51/100, ranking 55th. The score is generally in decline. Furthermore there's a culture of impunity, a journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia was murdered (for which a public inquiry held the state responsible) and the country was greylisted by the FATF. There's work to be done.

  • Implement recommendations of the Venice Commission.

  • Implement recommendations of the European Commission’s Rule of Law report.

  • Implement recommendations of the Daphne Caruana Galizia Inquiry Report.

  • Scrap the Golden Passport Scheme.

  • Make information on public spending transparent, current, and easily accessible.

  • Implement Integrity Pacts for new and past public-private partnerships

The 5+1 Challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
