AU Summit to hold 15-19 February 2023

The Information and Communication Directorate (ICD) of the African Union Commission (AUC) has announced that the 2023 African Union Summit will hold from 15 – 19 February 2023 at the AU Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The meetings are scheduled to take place as follows:

·                     16 - 27 January 2023: 45th Ordinary Session of the PRC (Ambassadors)

·                     15 - 16 February 2023: 42nd Ordinary Session of the Executive Council (Ministerial Session)

·                     18-19 February 2023: 36th ordinary Session of the AU Assembly (Heads of State and Government Session).

Comoros is expected to assume for the first time the chairmanship of the African Union in 2023 as Senegal’s mantle comes to end this month.

The island nation takes the new role after the contender Kenya reportedly pulled out its bid. President Azali Assoumani and his Kenyan counterpart William Ruto had been separately lobbying for the top post, the media notes.

Assoumani will take over from Senegal’s Macky Sall who took the mantle in February from Democratic Republic of Congo’s Tshisekedi.
