Burkina Faso junta approves three-year transition plan

Burkina Faso’s new military ruler has approved a transitional charter that will allow him to stay in power for three years.

Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba signed a charter that was drawn-up by a military-appointed commission and had been discussed by a national forum in Ouagadougou.

The document says he will not be allowed to stand in elections scheduled for 2025.

An opposition leader, Eddie Komboigo, said not everyone would be happy with the plan, but it was based on consensus.

The previous leader, Roch Kaboré, has remained under house arrest since he was toppled in January.

Burkina Faso has been suspended from the regional group, Ecowas, and the African Union.
