Since the beginning of 2013, a Political Council has been setting up within the Mediterranean Commission. This council gathers elected representatives from the countries bordering the Mediterranean and also from the networks working in the area. It takes positions on Mediterranean Commission’s working guidelines and gives a political voice to Mediterranean local and regional authorities.
Within the framework of the UCLG World Congress, the members of the Council gathered a second time on 2nd October in Rabat. During this meeting, the elected representatives have adopted their Charter in favor democratic governance in the Mediterranean. This charter illustrates the values that these elected representatives share and intend to defend.
