Voting proxies

Voting proxies

Voting proxies for individuals absent or unable to vote. Family member or designated power of attorney entitled up to 2/3 proxy votes for immediate or extended family members


There would be an high risk of abuse if proxies or POA's were to be introduced. Nowadays there is assistance provided to the elderly or those who cannot vote on their own due to disability. Additionally, for those who live abroad, the option to vote at the Maltese embassy in the respective country would be a good alternative (this is not yet in place, it was proposed on this forum).

This could result in the sale of votes - rather introduce postal voting.
