The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda is pleased to inform members of the media and the general public that it’s President, Dr.Frank HABINEZA has been re-elected to Chair the African Greens Federation for the next four years (2014-2018).
This vote of confidence took place at the African Greens Congress in Antananarivo-Madagascar, from 20th -21st June 2014. The Congress brought together 17 political parties from across Africa. The African Greens Federation has its headquarters in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
Dr.Frank Habineza was first elected in 2010, when DGPR was still struggling to get registered, a process that took it four years. His new election as President of the African Greens Federation was an appreciation for achievements recorded in the last four years and as well an acknowledgement to the Government of the Republic of Rwanda for having allowed the Greens set foot in Rwanda.
He was also one of the three officials elected to represent Africa on the Global Greens Coordination, the second coming from Niger and the other from Morocco. The substitutes come from Madagascar, Chad and Uganda.
The congress also elected other officials, from different parts of Africa, who include: the First Vice President from Burkina Faso, Second Vice President from Madagascar, Secretary General from Senegal, Treasurer from Uganda and the Communication Secretary from Niger. The Committee also has Regional Chairs: Togo represents West Africa, Kenya represents East Africa, Egypt represents North Africa, Congo-Kinshasa represents Central Africa, Mauritius represents the Indian Ocean states, while the Southern Region will send its representative at a later date.
