Network for UN Parliamentary Assembly planned in Uruguay
On 25 September 2007 Prof. Fernando Iglesias, the Executive Director of Democracia Global, an NGO participating in the Campaign for a UN Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA) gave a lecture on the needs and perspectives of democracy at the regional and international level. The event, taking place in the building of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay Congress, was co-organized by deputy Beatriz Argimón and the local Social Science College (UDELAR) and attracted distinguished political and cultural leaders. After the event participants met and agreed to work on the establishment of a network seated in Montevideo. The support of the UNPA-Campaign and the transformation of the Mercosur Parliament into a real regional parliament were defined as priority tasks of the planned group.
