Former Chad opposition leader appointed as PM of transitional government.

Chad’s transitional government has appointed former opposition leader Succes Masra, who recently returned to the country following exile, as prime minister.

Masra will serve through the transition to civilian rule, Mahamat Ahmad Alhabo, Chad’s new secretary-general of the presidency, said on Monday.

Masra, president of The Transformers party, strongly opposed the military rulers who came to power in April 2021 after the death of Idriss Deby Itno, who led the country for 30 years.

In a referendum last month on a new constitution, where 86 percent of participants voted “yes”, Masra urged supporters to vote in favour of the constitution, which is now expected to pave the way towards an election.

He argued that its adoption would accelerate the end of the transition, while the rest of the opposition urged Chadians to vote ‘”no” or to boycott the referendum.
