The African Parliamentary Union (APU), formerly the Union of African Parliaments, is a continental interparliamentary organization set up in Abidjan on 13th February, 1976. Its Statutes have been modified and adopted during the 22nd Conference which took place on 17 and 18 September 1999 in Luanda (Angola).

The APU Headquarters is in Abidjan. A Headquarters Agreement was signed on January 7th, 1983, between the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire and the African Parliamentary Union.

The APU has the mandate to:

[1] to bring together the parliamentary institutions of all African States;

[2] to encourage contacts among African Parliamentarians, on the one hand, and between African Parliamentarians and Parliamentarians of other continents, on the other hand ;

[3] to contribute to the strengthening of the parliamentary institution in Africa, the promotion of democracy, and the realization of the objectives of the Organization of African Unity for the establishment of a lasting peace.

The APU is and will remain a privileged framework for parliamentary dialogue and for promoting peace, democracy, good governance, sustainable development and social progress in Africa. For this purpose, it holds annual conferences in order to discuss these matters and also organizes parliamentary meetings in cooperation with International Organizations or Institutions.

At present, 35 National parliaments are members of the APU.
