Cameroon's Member of Parliament, Hon. Emilia Monjowa Lifaka, has been elected Chairperson of the Executive Committee of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, CPA. She was elected yesterday in Dhaka, Bangladesh during the 63rd conference of the association. The Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Cameroon secured 107 votes against 70 votes for her opponents; Hon. Niki Rattle and 15 votes for Hon. Shiley Osborne, who are Speakers of the National Assemblies of Cooks Island and Montserrat respectively. Hon. Lifaka is therefore expected during her tenure at the helm of the association to promote Commonwealth values and principles. She has been credited for the key role played in the successful organisation of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference which Cameroon hosted in October 2014.
