July 15th 2015: The selection process for a new Secretary-General for the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) has begun, with the Speaker of Sierra Leone, Hon. S.B.B. Dumbuya being one of few panelists selecting the African candidate. The Hon. Speaker, representing West Africa was recently part of a panel interviewing four short-listed candidates in Tanzania, from a list of twenty-two applicants from Africa. The four are from Namibia, Kenya and Mauritius with two candidates.

 

According to the Clerk of Parliament, Hon. Ibrahim Sesay who also witnessed the interviews in Dar es Salaam, this is a highly competitive process whereby the selected candidate from Africa will be joining eight others from other continents for the finalprocess in London. They will then be further shortlisted to only three candidates for final interviews. He said that the interviews are aimed at assessing applicants’ general understanding of the nature and scope of the CPA and their potentials for meeting the resource and management challenges of this foremost parliamentary organization.

 

The selected candidate will be succeeding the late Dr. William F. Shija of Tanzania, who passed away last year. Some three years ago, following the swearing-in of the present Fourth Parliamentof Sierra Leone, Dr. Shija was guest of the Parliament of Sierra Leone, when he organized a post-election seminar on behalf of the CPA for all parliamentarians. News of his demise was announced in a somber tone by the Hon. Speaker, who asked the House to observe a moment’s silence in his honour.


Established in 1911, the CPA is the oldest parliamentary institution, comprising 180 parliaments and legislatures in 53 countries worldwide and representing some 18, 000 Members of Parliament.
