AU struggles in implementing its decisions
(APA)-- Many decisions taken during the various sessions of the African Union (AU) have not been implemented, says a report by the AU copied to APA on Monday in Addis Ababa, on the sidelines of the 16th Summit of the Pan-African organisation that continues its two-day session behind closed doors, focusing on the topic: ‘Shared values for greater unity and integration.’
The report on the implementation of previous decisions of the Executive Council comprising the ministers of foreign affairs and the conference of heads of state, notes that the AU Commission has identified 56 decisions of the Executive Council and 79 decisions of the Conference, which have not yet been executed.
This accounts for high financial implications or technical reasons and/or lack of time, notes the document.
The AU Commission which has submitted this report for adoption by African heads of state, said it is therefore ‘extremely important’ that decisions to be taken during this session be based on a thorough assessment of their financial implications, required human resources and institutional capacities.
