German MP Karl A. Lamers (CDU - Bundestag) was elected today (16 November 2010) by acclamation as the new President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly on the occasion of the 56th NATO PA Annual Session, which is taking place in Warsaw, Poland. He succeeds to US Congressman John Tanner.

Dr Lamers, a leading Member of the Defence Committee of the German Bundestag, has been serving at the Assembly since 1998, undertaking various responsibilities within the Political Committee which he chaired since 2008 until now. Head of the German Delegation to the NATO PA since 2006, he also served as NATO PA vice-President from 2006 to 2008.

“Dialogue, Co-operation and communication” will be the guiding principles of his presidency, said Mr Lamers to some 260 parliamentarians attending the plenary sitting, which concludes this NATO PA Annual Session.

President Lamers will represent the NATO Parliamentary Assembly at the forthcoming NATO Lisbon summit.
