IPU 12+ Geopolitical Group Holds Virtual Meeting

MPs Mladen Grujic and Dr Milorad Mijatovic took part today in the virtual meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) 12+ geopolitical group where the members voted for a candidate for IPU President.


Portuguese Parliament Vice-President Duarte Pacheco and Canadian senator Salma Ataullahjan had submitted candidacies. Having been both interviewed by parliamentarians from 43 states, the 12+ geopolitical group selected Portuguese Parliament Vice-President Duarte Pacheco as its candidate for IPU President.

The IPU President will be elected at the meeting of the IPU Governing Council to be held 1 – 4 November 2020 instead of the interparliamentary institution’s regular plenary session.

At the meeting, the IPU members will elect a new president to head the institution for the coming three years.
