Ghana’s Foreign Minister bids for the position of the Secretary General of the Commonwealth at elections to be held during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in SAMOA, in October 2024.

Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, launched a bid to be the next Commonwealth secretary-general, saying she wants to see a free-trade agreement among the 56 member nations. The voluntary association of sovereign states comprises the United Kingdom and a number of former colonies. It promotes democratic governance, cooperation in trade, education, climate advocacy and the transparency of financial systems. Headed by King Charles III, the secretary-general is responsible for running the London-based secretariat. By convention, the secretary-general role is rotated around the body’s four geographical blocs: the Pacific, Asia, Europe and Africa. It is now Africa’s turn.
