The Republic of The Gambia will chair the African Union Peace Security Council (PSC) in August, according to report.
The country was elected for a two-year term (2022-2024) during the 35th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union held from 5 to 6 February 2022 in the African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. The successful election of The Gambia to the PSC constitutes a validation of the successful reform initiatives of the Government of The Gambia since 2017. This is also coupled with the recognition of the resulting national capacities to more meaningfully contribute to the effective implementation of the continental democratic governance, peace and security agenda.
