HE Kennan Ranibok Adeang (b. December 23, 1942) is a Nauruan political figure and was President of the Republic of Nauru during a number of short periods of office in the 1980s.

Contents

Family

His son, David Adeang, has served as Foreign Minister of Nauru and served briefly as Speaker of the Parliament of Nauru in March - April 2008, having previously maintained a sometimes chequered association with the Nauru First Party, which, however, had yet to be founded during Kennan Adeang's periods of Presidential office.

President of Nauru (1st & 2nd terms)

Kennan Adeang served twice as President of Nauru in 1986: in September-October of that year and again briefly in December. It may be noted that Nauru's parliamentary system makes it easy for a head of state's term of office to be frequently brought to an end; this may partly account for the termination of Adeang's first two short periods of Presidential office.

President of Nauru (3rd term)

Kennan Adeang assumed the Presidency of Nauru again in November-December 1996, before relinquishing the office once again.

In Adeang's periods of political office he was regarded as an opponent of veteran Nauruan politician Hammer DeRoburt.

While in Opposition following his second period of Presidential office, Adeang founded and led the Democratic Party of Nauru, which was seem as a focal point for legislators and their supporters who wanted to maintain independence from the influence of DeRoburt.

Adeang was first elected to parliament in 1971, ousting Derog Gioura, but was forced to resign a few months later; Gioura took his seat in the parliament. Adeang was re-elected in 1973 instead of Gioura to serve a second term, but lost his seat again to Gioura in the 1976 elections. In the 1977 snap elections Adeang was re-elected, but had to resign once again to leave Gioura the seat. In 1980 both Adeang and Gioura were elected to parliament and they both served long-time terms from then on. Adeang had to resign again in 1987 for two months, but was re-elected in the following by-election.
