The Parliament of Uganda is due to host the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) next year in September.

 

The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has been elected president of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) for 2018 to 2019 during the executive meeting underway in London, UK.

The Parliament of Uganda is due to host the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) next year in September.

The conference will be run under theme:  Adaption, engagement and evolution in a rapidly changing Commonwealth.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association executive meeting is being attended by among others, the Speakers from Cameroon, Malta, Kenya, Lesotho and Zambezi.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) exists to develop, promote and support Parliamentarians and their staff to identify benchmarks of good governance and to implement the enduring values of the Commonwealth.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) organises its annual Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) each year.

Global political issues and developments in the parliamentary system are analysed in conference debates among leading Parliamentarians representing Parliaments and Legislatures throughout the Commonwealth.

These plenary conferences were biennial from 1948 to 1959 and annual since 1961. A summary of the main views expressed in conference debates is sent to members, Commonwealth governments and international agencies.

The conference period also encompasses meetings of the General Assembly, the Executive Committee, Small Branches Members, the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP) and meetings for Parliamentary Clerks and Secretaries (SOCATT).
