The process of delegating the decision-making process on the continent to a central organ preoccupied political debate at the advent of the formation of the Organisation of African Unity and has equally been one of the fundamental challenges of the African Union and New Partnership for Africa's Development.

This article also looks at how this important decision-making process is being carried out in the Communaute Economique et Monetaire de l'Afrique Centrale (CEMAC) subregion and to what extent the various institutional bodies have been shaped to facilitate the process.
