Malta – Northern Region – Mosta – Freddie Micallef Statue

Statues of politicians are quite useful in a country that I don’t know, as they give me an opportunity to find out more about them. Freddie Micallef was a Government Minister for a few years in the 1970s and a representative in Parliament for a much longer period, from 1966 until 1996 (serving in the country’s second to seventh legislatures).

I’m not sure that he had any standout policies, certainly the country’s Labour party didn’t mention any when commenting on his death, but they said “he was a man of whom one could never speak badly and was always on everyone’s good side. He also never held back from mixing with anyone, no matter their background or history” which is rather nice.
