Chad Pm Resigns To Pave Way For New Government

The Chad’s president office said Prime Minister Albert Pahimi Padacke has resigned in order to pave the way for a new government,

This came after the Central African country decided to push back elections by two years.

 Padacke, a civilian politician, was named prime minister of a transitional military government in 2021 after President Mahamat Idriss Deby seized power in the wake of his father’s death.

The military council led by Deby was to rule for 18 months, but the country announced it would push back democratic elections until around October 2024.

Deby was sworn in as president for the new transition phase and was expected to appoint a new premier.
