PAP President in Kigali for IPU Assembly

The President of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP), H.E. Hon. Chief Fortune Zephania Charumbira has arrived in Kigali, Rwanda to take part in the 145th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and its related meetings from 11 to 15 October 2022.

At the invitation of the Parliament of the Republic of Rwanda, all IPU statutory bodies, including the Governing Council, Standing Committees, Committees on the Human Rights of Parliamentarians and on Middle East Questions, as well as the Forum of Women Parliamentarians and the Forum of Young MPs, are convening during this Assembly.

The General Debate is expected to focus on the overall theme of Gender equality and gender-sensitive parliaments as drivers of change for a more resilient and peaceful world -and provide a platform for delegates to deliberate, exchange views and galvanize parliamentary action in this area.

During its 208th session, held in Madrid, Spain, the Governing Council of the IPU officially admitted the PAP as an Associate member, cementing its place within the Union alongside other international parliamentary assemblies and similar bodies.

The President of the PAP says that the upcoming Assembly presents an opportunity for the continental Parliament to renew its ties with parliamentary organizations around the world. H.E Hon. Charumbira adds that his delegation will seek to reinforce the message regarding the PAP’s return to full operational functionality and the new Bureau’s resolve to “revive, renew, reposition, and reinvigorate” the Parliament.
