Josephine Attard Sultana kicked out of the GWU

In what is increasingly looking like a purge of officials who had supported the failed contestant for the GWU’s top post in October, Manuel Micallef, yesterday the union’s national council voted to terminate the involvement with the union of section secretary Josephine Attard Sultana.
With 29 votes in favour and 13 against, the union’s national council approved a motion presented by Secretary General Tony Zarb and his deputy Gejtu Mercieca to strip Attard Sultana of her post within the union.
Attard Sultana was the secretary of the public service section within the union. The president of the same section, Francis Buttigieg was also removed from his post.
Yesterday’s decision exposes the internal strife that has engulfed the GWU after last October’s bitter battle that pitted moderates against miltants.
