Burkina army okays blueprint for power transfer

Burkina Faso's army-appointed leader Lieutenant-Colonel Isaac Zida (R) waits to welcome officials on November 11, 2014 at Ouagadougou airportBurkina Faso’s army agreed Thursday to a blueprint for a transition to civilian rule, almost two weeks after the ouster of the west African country’s president Blaise Compaore. The army is under mounting international pressure to transfer power to an interim government. The army installed Lieutenant-Colonel Isaac Zida, the 49-year-old second-in-command of the presidential guard, as the new leader of the landlocked nation. The blueprint stipulates that the speaker of the interim parliament, the National Transition Council (CNT), will be a civilian “elected by his peers” and not a soldier as the army had previously demanded.
