Mixed reaction to GRTU President’s comments on Divorce

While most of the people that commented were in agreement with the GRTU President Paul Abela that when people are in business, disruption of family life is fundamental and brings dire consequences on the business itself. There were other voices that complained that since GRTU stated correctly that this is not an issue in which GRTU as a body would express an opinion it would have been better if no person in a position of influence at GRTU was to express any opinion.

 

Among the most vociferous voices on the issue was that of Grace Borg, a long standing member of GRTU and former member of GRTU Council and when contacted she stated:

"I will be voting yes because I believe it is my right to have the choice and the church had no right whatsoever to campaign against divorce. The church has the annulment, which is worse for the children as it would have been as if their parent's marriage never took place."

The meeting with Moviment Zwieg bla Divorzju took place as a result of their invitation and no invitation from the other side during the course of the campaign ever reached GRTU. GRTU would have been pleased to meet this interest group as well.
