Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune assumed, on Wednesday evening, the presidency of the Forum of Heads of State and Government of the African Peer Evaluation Mechanism.
The Algerian President assumed the presidency of this mechanism from the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Julius Maada Bio, former President of the Forum, during the session held today via video conference technology.
Egypt participated in this session, represented by Prime Minister Dr. Mostafa Madbouly, who delivered a speech on behalf of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi. In it, he stressed the state’s commitment to implementing the principles of governance adopted by the African Union, in order to support the tasks of this African mechanism.
It is noteworthy that the African Peer Review Mechanism is an initiative adopted by a number of African countries, including Egypt, and the mechanism specializes in the areas of: democracy, political governance, economic governance and administration, and economic and social development, as an embodiment of the principle of “African solutions to African problems.”
The mechanism actually began its work on March 9, 2003, as an African tool for monitoring and self-evaluation, aiming to exchange experiences, promote best practices, and support capacity building of African countries. Member States of the Mechanism undertake a voluntary self-evaluation of their performance in these areas.
This mechanism focuses on four main axes: democracy and good political governance, good economic management, business sector management, and economic and social development. The number of member states in the mechanism is 37, including Egypt, which joined in 2004.
