The session discussed requests to include the emergency item on the assemblys agenda, and in this regard, it was agreed to withdraw all requests by its authors, with the exception of the request submitted by the African Parliamentary Union on collecting global parliamentary support to achieve equity in vaccination in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, where the request was approved, as well as continuing public discussions.
