PEOPLES PARLIAMENT TO BE DISCUSSED AT THE UN/NGO CONFERENCE
After three decades of dedicated work a significant breakthrough has been achieved at the United Nations. For the first time the concept of a Peoples Parliament within the UN system, under UN Charter Articles 22 or 7.2, will be included in the annual UN/NGO Conference. The conference is from September 6-8 at the UN Headquarters in New York. The session on a Peoples Parliament will be held on September 8 from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. in the UN Correspondents Club on the 3rd floor.
A People's Parliament, as a companion to the General Assembly, would facilitate the creation of effective partnerships to work for human security and sustainable development and add an effective moral voice to deliberations at the UN on the critical global issues.
