She was elected unopposed during the election held at the Pan African Parliament headquarters in Midrand, South Africa, Thursday, May 02, 2013.

The Pan African Parliament Youth Caucus was formed following a Motion passed at the continental body during its First Ordinary Session of the Third Parliament in October 2012.

Hon. Amongin pledged to champion the cause of the young people on the African continent. She said the Caucus will have to work with national parliaments in order to put issues of the youth on their agenda.

“Implementation of the African Youth Charter should be our priority. I will base my service on truth, trustworthiness and transparency,” she said.

The African Youth Charter was adopted by the African Union Heads of States and Governments in 2006. It was intended to serve as a strategic framework that gives direction for youth empowerment at all levels.

The Pan African Parliament Youth Caucus was created to strengthen and consolidate efforts to empower young people through meaningful youth participation and equal partnership in driving Africa’s development agenda.

In addition, it was created to work with civil society and other relevant stakeholders within member states to facilitate the ratification and implementation of the African Youth Charter.

It is expected that that the youth (below 35 years), who comprise about 50 percent of Africa’s population, can be used as a force for peace, democracy, quality and good governance; and as an important resource for sustainable development and poverty eradication on the African continent.
