Burkina Faso political transition accord signed
OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — Officials in Burkina Faso have signed a charter intended to guide the country toward elections as various factions submitted nominations for an interim head of state to replace longtime President Blaise Compaore, who abruptly stepped down last month.
The signing ceremony took place Sunday at the House of the People in the capital, Ouagadougou. Politicians as well as representatives of the army, civil society and religious and traditional leaders all participated.
An interim president was expected to be named by Monday.
Compaore, who served 27 years in office, resigned on Oct. 31 amid mounting opposition to his bid to seek yet another term
After suspending the constitution, the military designated Lt. Col. Isaac Yacouba Zida as the transitional leader, though Zida faced intense pressure to restore civilian rule.
