Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU)
About the Delegation
The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) is an international organisation established in 1989 as a forum for political multilateral negotiations. The Maltese Parliament, together with the parliaments of 163 other countries, is a member of the IPU. The IPU has a permanent observer status at the United Nations.
One of the organs of the IPU is the Assembly which meets twice a year. The Assembly is composed of parliamentarians designated as delegates by the parliaments of the countries in the Union. It is assisted in its work by a number of standing committees which normally prepare reports and draft resolutions for the Assembly.
The parliamentary delegation to the Inter-Parliamentary Union, is out in Motion No. 26 approved by the House on 29 April 2013.
