Pan-African Parliament will convene starting on Tuesday to elect new leadership in Midrand, Johannesburg. Parliamentarians from various African nations have descended to South Africa to choose a new administration.

The objective of the Pan-African Parliament is to offer solutions to a number of challenges facing the continent.

The Pan African Parliament was thrown into turmoil during the last sitting when they tried to get a new President.  They failed to reach a consensus.

Some members say it is time to get down to business and deal with the important issues. They hope such embarrassing scenes will be avoided at all costs when they elect new leadership.

The sitting comes as the world has seen the cost of living rising in the continent and beyond.
