Chadian Prime Minister resigns to pave way for new Government

Chad’s prime minister has resigned along with his government, a day after the country’s military leader announced the creation of a “government of national union” to chart the path to new elections.

Albert Pahimi Padacke handed in his resignation at an audience with Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno, who on Monday was sworn in as “transitional president,” Deby’s office said.

Meanwhile, Former Chadian opposition figure Saleh Kebzabo says that the respect of “all freedoms” and “human rights in all their forms” will be part of the programme after his appointment by Chadian ruler Mahamat Idriss Deby as Prime Minister to lead a government of the national union.

Deby named Saleh Kebzabo, 75, a former journalist who ran four times for the presidency against his iron-fisted father, Idriss Deby Itno, to steer the country back to civilian government.
