Malta opposition eyes return to power

Malta's opposition leader Joseph Muscat sought to consolidate his advantage Sunday over embattled Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi a week before the tiny Mediterranean island holds elections. Gonzi's Nationalist Party (PN) has ruled Malta since 1987, except for a 22-month stint in the 1990s, but Muscat's Labour Party (PL) is leading by 12 percentage points in the latest polls -- though many of the country's 332,000 voters remain undecided or have shunned pollsters' questions.
