African Union chief Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said in a statement that such a transition would “not only be consistent with the legitimate aspirations of the people of Burkina Faso for change and the deepening of democracy, but would also facilitate the mobilisation of the support necessary for a successful way out of the crisis”. She also called on the country’s youth to remain clam and urged “leaders of the defence and security forces to refrain from any acts or statements that may lead to further instability in Burkina Faso”. She urged “political stakeholders and civil society in Burkina Faso to work together in a spirit of consensus and responsibility, in order to agree on a civilian-led transition that would culminate, as soon as possible, in the holding of free, fair and transparent elections.”
