AU acknowledges the strategic importance of PAP

The efforts of the H. E. Senator Chief Charumbira led Bureau of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) to revive the legislative aspirations of the institution and provide a new sense of direction have received a major boost.

This comes after African Ministers of Foreign Affairs reaffirmed the strategic importance of the Parliament within the democratic and governance architecture of the African Union (AU) during the opening day of the 41st Ordinary Session of the Executive Council of the Union taking place in Lusaka, Zambia.

Members of the Council have overwhelmingly welcomed back the PAP after being absent from AU high-level engagements for one year, owing to the suspension of Parliamentary activities due to differences over modalities for the election of Office-Bearers.

Reflecting on the challenges that recently plagued the continental Parliament, the Executive Council has urged the new leadership to hit the ground running and ensure that the Parliament fully plays its role by amplifying the voices of the African citizens in the construction of the Africa We Want.
