Burkina Faso bans ousted president's party

A picture taken on November 12, 2008 shows Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaore in GenevaBurkina Faso’s interim government said Monday it was suspending the party of ousted president Blaise Compaore, who is now in exile in Ivory Coast. “The party named the Congress for Democracy and Progress (CDP) has been suspended for activities incompatible with the law,” said Auguste Denise Barry, who heads the equivalent of the interior ministry, said in a statement. Compaore fled Burkina Faso on October 31 after being ousted in a revolt sparked by his bid to extend his 27-year hold on power. Faced with intense international pressure, the military eventually agreed to hand power over to an interim government, and Zida was given the temporary premiership until elections are held in November 2015.
