Hon Mbow made this statement when he was delivering the report of the National Assembly Delegation to the Pan African Parliament before deputies at the National Assembly.

The Upper Saloum NAM told deputies that the motion canvassed the support of African countries in accordance with the longstanding principle of solidarity and in view of the successful advocacy carried out by the PAP in 2016 that led to the lifting of economic sanctions similarly imposed on Sudan since 2007.

According to Hon Mbow, the PAP session will be crucial in fostering full PAP functionality and that the first week of the session will focus on proposals for amendment of the PAP Rules of Procedure.

He emphasised the centrality of the Rules of Procedure to the normal functioning of the PAP, saying it is a vital tool for PAP in the performance of its functions.

“The new roadmap needs to guide us and ensure a more effective execution of the mandate of the PAP,” he said. “I therefore urge all members to impart and share their input and suggestions during this process in this way, and the PAP will play a significant role and become the big brother of parliaments in Africa.”
