EAC presidents are expected to decide on whether the political federation is to be under a two-tier structure with a federal entity and constituent state governments or a one-tier structure.
EAC presidents will decide on whether all the five member states will join the federation at the same time or on the principle of variable geometry, which allows member countries to join the federation at different times and stages.
EAC political federation is the fourth and last pillar of the EAC integration, which aims at integrating the people of the region in all aspects of life.
