Pan African parliament suspends sessions due to conflicts

Pan African parliament suspends sessions due to conflicts

Johannesburg, South Africa, Jun 2 (Prensa Latina) The Pan African Parliament (PAP) has seen its working sessions temporarily canceled after the vote on its presidency was halted due to differences that led to infighting.

PAP Secretariat spokesperson Jeffrey Onganga explained that the suspension is indefinite after disputes led to certain physical violence among parliamentarians, so the resumption date of the sessions would be confirmed ‘at a later stage.’

The PAP working sessions was scheduled to take place between May 21 and June 4.

The origin of the dispute among legislators lies in the disagreement of the so-called Southern Africa regional caucus, which considers that the internal statutes should be reformulated to ensure a rotating Presidency, equity and greater transparency (among nations from different regions of the continent).
