(See translation in Arabic section)

Sydney - M E Times Int'l: Former New South Wales Premier and federal Finance Minister John Fahey has died aged 75.

He’s remembered for his political achievements including a major overhaul to the state’s industrial relations system, his elated reaction when Sydney was named host of the 2000 Olympics and his quick thinking response when he tackled a gunman running on stage during Prince Charles’ 1994 world tour of Australia.

Mr Fahey was first elected to the state legislative assembly in 1984 before entering federal politics in 1996.

NSW PREMIER GLADYS BEREJIKLIAN

We mourn the loss of John Fahey AC, Premier of NSW from 1992 to 1995, who dedicated almost two decades of his life in service to NSW and Australia.

John Fahey helped deliver major reforms for NSW, as Premier and as a member of the Greiner Government. He played a key role in one of the biggest victories in Australian history – the successful bid for Sydney to host the Olympic Games in 2000.

History will also remember him as a brave man, for his quick-thinking and selfless action to protect Prince Charles from an attack on Australia Day in 1994. 

My thoughts are with John’s wife Colleen, his children and grandchildren. I have spoken to Colleen to pass on my condolences and offer a State memorial service.

Mr Fahey migrated from New Zealand as a boy and was raised with strong Catholic values. He was elected State Member for Camden in 1984. In 1996 he made the move to Federal politics, elected to the House of Representatives for Macarthur, where he served as Finance Minister in the Howard Government. He dedicated 17 years to politics before he retired in 2001.

 

NSW OPPOSITION LEADER JODI McKAY

My thoughts are with the family, friends and parliamentary colleagues of John Fahey AC, who served the public with great distinction.

John Fahey will be remembered as a person who always acted with the highest integrity throughout his nearly two decades in public life serving in both the NSW and Federal Parliaments.

I send my condolences to John’s wife Colleen, their children and grandchildren. I support Premier Berejiklian’s decision to offer the Fahey family a state memorial service.
