The 32nd Ordinary Session of the African Union (AU) ran from 10-18 July 2016, under the theme ‘A Year of Human Rights, with Special Focus on the Rights of Women’. Towards the end of the week, heads of state sought to elect the new AU Commission chairperson. However, the summit closed without appointing a new head for the organisation. SAIIA researcher Aditi Lalbahadur spoke to CCTV about this inability to agree on a new chairperson and what it signifies for the continental body.
