The Chapter General of the Sovereign Order of Malta was held in Rome

Rome, 31/05/2014 


The Assembly has elected government members for the next five-year term

Presided over by the Grand Master Fra’ Matthew Festing, the Chapter General of the Sovereign Order of Malta was held in Rome on 30 and 31 May.  The Chapter General is convened every five years to elect the members of the Sovereign Council (the Government of the Order), the Government Council and the members of the Board of Auditors. Fra’ Ludwig Hoffmann von Rumerstein was elected as Grand Commander, Albrecht Boeselager was elected as Grand Chancellor, Head of the Executive Branch and Foreign Minister, whereas Dominique de la Rochefoucauld-Montbel and Janos von Esterhazy de Galantha, have been elected as Grand Hospitaller, Minister of Health and of International Cooperation, and as the Receiver of the Common Treasure respectively.

The Grand Master Fra’ Matthew Festing expressed his satisfaction at the conclusion: “I am confident that the expertise of the senior members elected to these important strategic posts in the government of the Sovereign Order of Malta will contribute great value as we move forward in this century of significant challenges  – social, humanitarian and spiritual – in the 120 countries where we work. I send my best wishes to the newly elected members for their important tasks.”

Sixty-one representatives of the Order participated in the Chapter General from five continents, including 28 of the Order’s religious, members of the executive branch and heads of the major national bodies.
