Chad – Government reappointed

In Chad, President Idriss Déby was inaugurated for his fourth consecutive term in office last week.

In conformity with the constitution, the prime minister, Emmanuel Nadingar, tendered his resignation. President Déby has just reappointed PM Nadingar to his position.

RNW via AFP is reporting that the previous government included ministers from the opposition. This was seen as a sign of conciliation in a system that is dominated by President Déby’s MPS party. However, two of those ministers have since passed away. Therefore, there is a question as to whether President Déby will continue this policy or whether, given the MPS won a big victory at the legislative and presidential election this year, the government will be more MPS-oriented.

If I have further information, then I will update this post.
