ADDIS ABABA - Moussa Faki Mahamat on Saturday secured a four-year second term as the chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission.

Mahamat was re-elected by African leaders who have gathered as part of the 34th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the AU, which kicked off virtually on Saturday.

According to the AU, some 51 of the 55 AU members voted in favor of Mahamat.

The chairperson of the AU Commission on Saturday presented an assessment of his first-term activities to the assembly of African leaders.

Mahamat was elected by African leaders to lead the 55-member pan-African bloc back in January 2017 during the 28th AU Summit.

Mahamat had last week announced "eight major priorities," seeking re-election.
