I do not think that contemplating the life of a man of Dr. Fenech Adami’s stature can ever do him justice; I believe, however, that we honor his ideals best by seeking to learn from his dedication to democratic and pro-European principles.
My outlook on our country’s future will always be guided by the conviction with which he sought a better economic future for us all. His belief in bridging the gap between the Europe we culturally and historically are a part of, and the European Union which is the prime driver behind Malta’s contemporary success, serves to remind us that we must try hard to achieve that which we would otherwise expect to fall in our laps, an attitude which Malta greatly benefitted from and needs now more than ever.
Although not being born in the 80’s, I probably know more about Eddie than I know about my own family. On a weekly basis, my family spoke highly about Eddie, ranging from the beginning of his political career, the harsh realities under a labour government, all the way down to his presidency. At first, I couldn’t grasp the true importance this man had in my life and I always thought that what he had done for our country could have been done by any political figure back then. However, I was very wrong! It is safe to say that thanks to Eddie I am where I am today by creating a new redefined Malta; a Malta filled with hope.
Eddie Fenech Adami is one of Malta's most influential statesman whose contribution led to the development of a democratic state based on the respect of fundamental human rights and civil liberties which were regularly abused prior to his election as Prime Minister in 1987.
A Nationalist Party (P.N.) politician, Eddie served as Prime Minister of Malta from 1987 until 1996, and again from 1998 until 2004. He led his party to win five general elections, in 1981, 1987, 1992, 1998 and 2003. Staunchly pro-European, he led the country to join the European Union in 2004 after having won a national referendum. Fenech Adami is the longest serving Maltese Prime Minister since Malta's independence in 1964.
