The Gambia to Chair AU Peace & Security Council in August

The Gambia to Chair AU Peace & Security Council in August (News Central TV)

Reports indicate that the Republic of The Gambia will chair the African Union Peace Security Council (PSC) in August 2022.

During the 35th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union, which took place from February 5–6, 2022, at the African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, the nation was chosen for a two-year term (2022–2044).

The Gambia’s election to the PSC in 2017 was successful, and thus serves as confirmation of the government’s 2017 reform efforts. The acknowledgement of the consequent national competencies to more significantly contribute to the successful implementation of the continental agenda for democratic governance, peace, and security goes hand in hand with this.
