The main provisions of the Maastricht Treaty on economic and monetary governance and subsequent substantive developments on economic, fiscal and monetary governance at a European Union level, have not been reflected in the Constitution of Malta. The Constitution of Malta contains only general provisions on matters pertaining to public finance, which are still in their original form since Malta achieved independence from Great Britain on 21 September 1964.

I suggest that the main provisions on the economic and monetary union as envisaged in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and as elaborated in the EU’s Regulations/Directives are entrenched in the Constitution.

If you are interested, I will elaborate further.
