New Delhi - In massive implications for Africa, the African Union (AU) summit in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa – which will culminate in the 28th Ordinary Assembly of AU Heads of State and Government at the end of this month – can truly galvanise the pan-African body. The two main items on the agenda are the election of a new AU commission chair and Morocco’s re-entry into the pan-African body. It will be recalled that Morocco had declared its intention to re-join AU at the Kigali summit last year. Subsequently, it submitted official requests to consider its AU reintegration and put the matter on the Addis Ababa summit agenda.
