Embattled CSA President Mary Isaac will remain as President. The verdict was delivered on Thursday when members voted, in a unanimous decision, to allow Mary Isaac and her executive team to continue to serve the organization.

There had been calls for the resignation of Isaac since she accepted a nomination from the opposition United Workers Party to serve as a senator. Following a petition by some members to have her removed, a meeting was held earlier this month and a vote taken to have her removed. But Isaac maintained that not only was the meeting unconstitutional, it violated her basic universal human rights of freedom of association. Since then Isaac has assumed the role of General Secretary of the CSA, when the former GS retired two weeks ago.

A subsequent meeting was convened last Thursday and Isaac made her entrance to thunderous applause from members in attendance at the CSA headquarters, Sans Souci. At the meeting 250 CSA members were present but only one hundred and sixty six reportedly voted in support of Isaac and her executive team remaining at the helm of the Union. Fourteen persons abstained and one person voted against it.

Members also voted for an investigation to find out who might be responsible for leaking sensitive CSA information to the public. Isaac later told the media that she had always maintained it was her constitutional right to accept the nomination as senator or turn it down. “That’s why the previous meeting was null and void; it cannot go anywhere,” she said.

About the investigations into the leaks she said it is not about victimizing anyone. “It is the hope that it will not continue to happen,” she said.
