A Moroccan parliamentarian delegation is currently in South Africa to assist the fourth session of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) organized in Midrand, a city near Johannesburg, from the 8th to 19th May, Business Standard reports.

This meeting is supposed to prepare for Morocco’s official return to the legislative body of the African Union, the same source indicates. «Our participation is aimed at finalizing the procedures for Morocco's accession to the Pan-African Parliament», Abdellatif Abdouh, member of the House of Councillors told MAP news agency.

Morocco’s return to the African organization will be formally achieved in the fifth session of the PAP which will be held next October. The delegation will meet other African delegations along with a number of senior officials.

«The presence of Morocco in the PAP will enable the Kingdom to defend its just and legitimate causes within a pan-African legislative institution whose influence is constantly strengthening», a Moroccan senior official told the same source.
