The WORST moments

3rd: Ben Camille's reality show (7%)

Worst: The murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia (56%)

The nation stood still on October 16th as news broke of the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. As the repercussions of her murder continue to be felt to this day (and will likely never go away), Daphne's assassination marks the worst moment of the year for Malta.
