Delegation in the Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is the parliamentary dimension of the oldest pan-European organisation. The first Assembly session was held on 10 August 1949. Since then, it has been the initiator of the most important activities and the main driving force of the Council of Europe.

The Parliamentary Assembly was established to promote democratic values and protect human rights. It comprises parliamentarians from 47 member states and 5 states with the status of observer. Each country, in accordance with its size, has between 2 and 18 representatives in the Parliamentary Assembly. The Parliamentary Assembly has sessions four times a year, while meetings of its working bodies are organized in between sessions.

Our country has been a full member since 2003.
