Malta’s Parliament – An Official History
New- shop stock
The book chronicles the political history and evolution of Malta's Parliament from 1800 to 2003 and is divided into three sections. Section One (1800-1921) with its study of the workings of the colonial style Council of Government, explores the emergence of a partially elected Chamber and the continuing Maltese struggle for responsible government. Section Two (1921-1964), examines Malta's first responsible government Parliament at work until its dissolution in 1933, when the 1921 Constitution which had created it was first suspended and later withdrawn. It also gives a brief look at the events which followed until responsible government was re-instated in 1947. This section then takes the reader through the issues debated in Parliament and the Parliamentary process, which culminated in Malta's Independence in 1964. Section Three (1964-2003) allows the reader to explore Malta's transition to Republican Government, the closure of the military base and its implications for a Malta free from the last vestiges of colonialism, and the long road to EU membership.
