Gozo NGOs Association to elect new Council for 2019-2021
|Email item||Print item||
A new Council to govern the Gozo NGOs Association will be elected for the period 2019 – 2021 during the Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The AGM is due to be held at the Gozo NGO Centre, Xewkija, Gozo on Friday, the 25th of January.
The Association said that an electoral commission will supervise the electoral process and will be comprised of Dr. Nadia Vella as Chairperson and Mr Antoine Vassallo and Mr Francesco Pio Attard as members.
The requirement to have an electoral commission was one of the new important statutory provisions introduced, into the Association’s revised Statute, during an Association’s Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) held in November last year.
The Statute, as now revised, also caters for a number of other loopholes which prior to 2016, brought about discord between the members of previous formations of the Council.
The Gozo NGOs Association explained that among other issues, the newly revised Association Statute clearly specifies that the Maltese version of the statute is the official one to be used in questions of interpretation.
Nominations from persons who would like to contest the election will be received from tomorrow, Friday, the 4th of January, up to noon on Wednesday, the 9th of January.
Further details and nomination forms can be obtained by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
