Malta's Prime Minister Joseph Muscat announced on 1 May 2017 he was going to ask the country's President to dissolve the Parliament, triggering an early election to be held on 3 June 2017.

The decision came after opposition parties demanded his resignation following allegations that his wife owns an offshore company in Panama.
