David Casa was born on 16 November 1968 in Valletta. He was elected Member of the European Parliament (MEP) in June 2004. Prior to that he was one of the founding members and subsequently Secretary General of the Moviment Iva, an organisation which played a fundamental role in the campaign in favour of Malta's accession to the European Union in the run-up to the referendum on the subject.
Mr. Casa was Secretary of the Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee (MEUSAC) and subsequently served as advisor and Personal Assistant to Prof Guido de Marco during his tenure as Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister. This role also ensured that David followed the process of membership closely since its inception. In 1999, when Professor Guido de Marco became President, David Casa was the Inter-Ministerial Coordinator for E.U. Matters in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
David was active in the Council of the Confederation of Malta Trade Unions and later he formed part of the Executive Committee of the Union of Bankers.
In the field of broadcasting, he led political programmes on Radio 101. Such programmes were aimed at providing information in relation to Malta and the European Union.
Over the past five years, David Casa has served as an MEP and has taken on the responsibility of rapporteur on two highly sensitive reports, namely The European Fisheries Fund and the Report on Slovakia's entry into the Euro Zone. Both votes were adopted with a vast majority by the European Parliament. Besides these two reports, Mr. Casa was also appointed EPP-Ed spokesperson on several other subjects, most notably the report on the European Social Agenda and more particularly on the European Globalisation Fund.
Besides being a member of several committees, David Casa also played an important role in the EP-Turkey joint parliamentary committee with several interventions and fruitful meetings both in Brussels and in Ankara. He is also an active member in the temporary committee on climate change.
