A PORT Elizabeth man is set to share the world stage with global leaders after being elected as the president of a non-party political organisation.
ANC MP Cedrick Frolick, 47, a former David Livingstone Senior Secondary School pupil from Port Elizabeth’s northern areas, said he was delighted to be chosen as the new president of Global Legislators Organisation (Globe) International.
Frolick, chairman of the South African National Assembly, is the first Globe president from outside the Group of Eight (G8) – France, US, UK, Russia, Germany, Japan, Italy and Canada – that make up the leading industrialised countries.
“Our new freedom has allowed a person like me who grew up in a notorious place known for drug-related issues and gangsterism to be in parliament and to represent the country on world stages, let alone to sit with the president of the World Bank Dr Jim Yong Kim,” Frolick said. – Yoliswa Sobuwa
