Hyzler, Albert V. ( 20.11.1916 - 26.10.1993) Politician. Born at Valletta,
the son of professor Joseph Hyzler and Marietta Muscat Fenech, Hyzler
studied at the Lycceum and the RUM from where he graduated M.D. Although
his wife was not keen on politics and would have preferred him to
specialize in medicine, Hyzler entered politics in after World War II. He
successfully contested the 1947 general elections with his father's DAP.
but his parlimentary experience was short-lived because his father retired
in 1950 when only one of his candidates was elected to the Legislative
Assembly. Hyzler contested successfully the 1951 elections with Boffa's
MWP, which at that time, formed a coalition government with the PN. During
this term, Hyzler was appointed minister of health but he had to resign
after 3 years because he voted against the leader and for his persisitent
opposition to Prime Minister Dr. Gorg Borg Olivier. Hyzler joined the MLP
in October 1953. He successfully contested the elections in the MLP's
interest in 195, 1962, 1966, and 1971. In 1955 he was given the portfolio
of minister of health and social services, an office he kept until April
1958. In the fifties he was a regular contributor in the MLP organ -
Is-Sebh. In 1971, after the MLP victory, Hyzler was nominated minister of
development and posts and again minister of health (1974 - 1976). During the
riots against the British administration in 1958, yzler was arrested and
jailed for 32 days. During his speaches he used to delight listeners with
his wit and sense of humour. He retired on 20 September 1976 but was again called to serve as
acting President of the Republic from December 1981 to February 1982.
Hyzler married Mary Rose Petrocochino in 1944.
