The MaltaToday special edition on Dom Mintoff published on Tuesday and today's MaltaToday midweek edition, which also focused on the legacy of the strongman of Maltese politics, have been very well received.

Tuesday's 24-page special edition carried the first reactions to the former prime Minister's death, an analysis of his legacy and pictures from Mintoff's 53-year-long career.

Today's edition carries a survey on how the Maltese look at Mintoff's political career and comments from a number of persons who worked closely with the former Labour leader.

In today's editorial, MaltaToday pointed out "...there is something undeniably alluring (from a Labour perspective, at any rate) about the image of Mintoff as the last of a now extinct breed of strongman politician: the like of which can never reappear, because the world that once produced such 'ubermensch' no longer exists."

Censu’s father Kolinu hailed from Victoria Gozo, whereas Mintoff‘s father Wenzu was from the small village of Ghasri Gozo’. R.I.P. PERIT
