World’s legislators to meet in Bali with global warming on agenda
April 28th, 2007

The Indonesian island of Bali was Saturday set to welcome parliamentarians from across the world for the 116th assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), the secretary general of the group said, with climate change at the top of the agenda.

“We will have a debate, with global warming as the backdrop,” Swede Anders Johnsson told AFP, adding that he hoped that politicians and their governments would take up the issue.

Founded in 1889 and based in Geneva, the IPU, which is seen as one of the world’s leading political organisation, is affiliated with 148 national parliaments and seven regional parliaments.

“We hope that many of the legislators will return to their countries and be active (on the subject of climate change),” he said. “It is important to be even more aggressive on these issues.”

The presence of the US military in Iraq would also be under discussion, added Johnsson.

Around 1,300 delegates of the IPU, including 700 legislators from around the world, were due to meet in Bali. The meeting will be opened Sunday by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
