Pan African Resources : -African parliament officials lobby Sierra Leone

11/26/2015 | 03:35pm US/Eastern

A delegation of the South Africa-based Pan-African parliament is in Sierra Leone to lobby the government to ratify the Pan-African protocol which seeks to empower the parliament.Jam Jalloh, head of documentation, at the African Union, joined the Vice President of the Pan-African Parliament, Sierra Leonean MP Bernadette Lahai, and other local MP members of the regional parliament on a tour of government officials.

On Wednesday they had meetings with the Minister of Justice and deputy minister of Foreign Affairs.

The new Pan-African protocol replaced the old one that founded the Pan-African parliament in 2005. This latest one will, among others, transform the parliament from an advisory entity to a legislative one.

African Union Heads of States at a Meeting in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, approved the new Pan-African Protocol. But before it could become legal it will have to be ratified by at least 28 member countries.

The target is to get this done by 2016, said Mr Jalloh in Freetown. He cited huge cost in having MPs traveling whenever they were needed.

The new protocol, he said, provides for MPs to stay permanently in Pretoria.

As at the moment, only Mali has ratified the protocol in West Africa.
