Already, Frank Annoh Dompreh is the Chairman of the Permanent Committee of Rural Economy, Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment of the Pan – African Parliament.

Before the elections, Annoh-Dompreh, calls for calm following a row that ensued during the election of leadership for the continental body.

Tensions were high during the fourth ordinary session of the Fifth Parliament of the Pan African Parliament held in Johannesburg, South Africa, where the Parliamentarians were infuriated by an announcement in the House that the elections would be postponed because a staff member had tested positive for Covid-19.

Commenting on the chaos created on the floor of the House, Frank Annoh-Dompreh said the behavior of his colleagues was unbecoming of them and called for reason to prevail.

At the extraordinary sitting meeting held in Johannesburg, when speaking on the Performance of the African Union Commission, Frank Annoh-Dompreh calls for more efforts from that unit if they are to achieve agenda 2063.

The Pan-African Parliament (PAP) was set up to ensure the full participation of African peoples in the economic development and integration of the continent.

The PAP is intended as a platform for people from all African states to be involved in discussions and decision-making on the problems and challenges facing the continent. The Parliament sits in Midrand, South Africa.
