Burkina president-elect's party tops legislative poll, no majority

Burkina Faso's newly elected President Roch Marc Christian Kabore arrives in the Movement of the People of Progress (MPP) party's headquarters in Ouagadougou, on December 2, 2015The party of Burkina Faso’s president-elect Roch Marc Christian Kabore came first in the west African country’s parliamentary vote but fell short of winning an absolute majority, according to official results announced Wednesday. After securing 55 seats out of 127 in Sunday’s election, Kabore’s Movement of the People of Progress (MPP) must now seek coalition partners in order to form a government. The outcome marks a second victory for Kabore, a former premier and once a close ally of ex-leader Blaise Compaore, after he won Sunday’s presidential election — the first since a popular revolt last year ended nearly three decades of rule by Compaore.
