 Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma of South Africa and the incumbent, Jean Ping of Gabon, are to contest the election for the post of chairman of the AU commission.
 In January, neither got the required two-thirds majority, leaving Mr Ping in office for another six months.

The dispute has overshadowed other issues, especially security and trade.
It has broadly split the organisation along linguistic lines, with English-speaking countries tending to support Ms Dlamini Zuma and French-speaking countries lining up behind Mr Ping.
 The African Union is ready to send troops to the restive eastern Democratic Republic of Congo as part of a peacekeeping force, AU Commission Chairman Jean Ping said on Sunday.
 The AU is prepared to contribute to the establishment of a regional force to put an end to the activities of armed groups,” Ping told African leaders at the opening of the pan-African bloc’s summit meeting in Ethiopia.
