124th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly held in Panama

All newspapers in Panama report on the 124th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly, held in Panama-City from 15 till 20 April. More than 800 parliamentarians from 120 countries participate in the event, which brings the total amount of parliamentarians, observers and invitees coming to the ATLAPA Convention Center to around 1,500.

The 124th IPU Assembly was inaugurated by President Ricardo Martinelli of Panama, in a ceremony attended as well by Joseph Deiss, President of the United Nations General Assembly, and Michelle Bachelet, Executive Director of UN Women. Dorindo Cortez, President of the Central American Parliament (PARLACEN), was denied participation as the Panamanian government no longer recognizes the representatives of PARLACEN. In November last year Panama officially withdrew from the Central American forum.

Wigberto Quintero, Secretary-General of the National Assembly of Panama and chairman of the organizing committee, stated that the Association of Secretaries General would meet in parallel with the 124th IPU Assembly. The key issues debated at the plenary session would be the earthquake in Japan and its impact on Asia. At the same time various commissions would debate issues such as peace and security, sustainable development, democracy, human rights and transparency and other topics.

Michelle Bachelet, Executive Director of UN Women, stressed the importance of leadership and political participation of women. Bachelet met with Ricardo Martinelli and several women leaders working in different sectors. Joseph Deiss met with President Martinelli and Foreign Minister Juan Carlos Varela. The officials discussed the presence of the United Nations in Panama, which is home to a regional hub of the organization. Elias Castillo, President of the Latin-American Parliament (Parlatino), stated that Latin-American countries should devote more resources to education and health, as part of their commitment to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Twenty UN workers were listed as being on the plane

A United Nations plane has crashed at Kinshasa airport in the Democratic Republic of Congo, killing 32 of 33 people on board, the UN says.

The CRJ-100 jet broke in two and burst into flames as it attempted to land in heavy rain.

It had reportedly flown from Goma via Kisangani in the north-east.

Twenty UN workers were listed as being on the plane, which had a Georgian crew and both Congolese and foreign nationals aboard.

The nationality of the lone survivor remains unknown.

The UN Stabilisation Mission in the DRC, Monusco – previously known as Monuc – has been operating in the country since 1999, and its mandate is due to expire at the end of June.

An estimated 5 million people died in what was dubbed “Africa’s world war” between 1998 and 2003.

The east of the country is still plagued by army and militia violence.

Presidential and parliamentary elections are scheduled to take place in November.
