Charumbira leads PAP Bureau to attend AU Mid Year Coordination Meeting

The Senator Chief Fortune Charumbira led newly elected Bureau of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) is expected at the 41st Ordinary Session of the Executive Council and the 4th Mid-Year Coordination Meeting (MYCM) of the African Union, scheduled to take place in Lusaka, Zambia, from 14 to 17 July 2022.

A report on the recently successful elections of the office-bearers of the PAP will feature on the agenda of the upcoming high-level engagements. The new leadership of the PAP is set to be introduced to Policy Organs of the AU, in line with the Executive Council Decision of October 2021, which resolved the stalemate around the modalities for the election of the Bureau and instructed that a report be presented at the next meeting of the decision-making structures of the Union.

As a reminder, on 29 June 2022, H.E. Chief Fortune Charumbira (Zimbabwe) was overwhelmingly elected as the new President of the PAP. Also elected to serve in the PAP Bureau, was the 1st Vice President, Hon. Prof. Massouda Mohamed Laghdaf from Mauritania; Hon. Dr Ashebiri Gayo from Ethiopia was elected as the 2nd Vice President, Hon. Lúcia Maria Mendes Gonçalves dos Passos from Cape Verde was voted as the 3rd Vice President, and Hon. Francois Ango Ndoutoume from Gabon elected as the 4th Vice President.

H.E. Chief Charumbira, President of the PAP says that the MYCM also presents an opportunity to advocate for greater support by, and collaboration with, the Policy Organs as the Continental legislature resumes its parliamentary activities.
