Morocco Readmitted To The African Union

Morocco has officially been readmitted as a Member of the African Union.

The vote took place during place the 28th summit of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Morocco submitted its bid to rejoin the African Union in July 2016 and has been lobbying countries allover Africa for its reinstatement. Morocco left the union in 1984 when African countries voted in favor of recognizing the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) in Western Sahara as a sovereign state. Morrocco currently controls Western Sahara, and claims as its own.

The first step towards returning to the African Union was made last July. During the 27th summit of the African Union held in July 2016 in Kigali, Rwanda, King Mohammed VI addressed a letter to the summit, in which he stated Morocco’s intention to rejoin the AU.

39 of our 54 states approved the return of Morocco.
