The fight against terrorism in Africa, the drafting of joint development plans for food security and deep reforms in the UN, with emphasis on the Security Council, in order to face the challenges of this new century, consisted of the main outcomes of the 3rd Ordinary Session of the 4th Legislature of the Pan-African Parliament, held on October 18 in Cairo, Egypt.

According to a note from the Angolan Embassy of Angola in Egypt, the event was held under the motto “Bringing closer the Pan-African Parliament, PAP, the African People”.

In the event, Angola was represented by a delegation of the National Assembly, led by the Honourable Fernando Franca Van-Dunem. The entourage also integrated the MPs Alfredo Brena, Catherina BeA�, Ernesto Mulato and Luis Reis Paulo.

The Pan-African Parliament (PAP), also known as the African Parliament, is the legislative body of the African Union and held its inaugural session in March 2004. The PAP exercises oversight, and has advisory and consultative powers, lasting for the first five years. Initially the seat of the Pan-African Parliament was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia but it was later moved to Midrand, South Africa.
