Burundi president re-election bid lost opportunity: US

Protests erupted in Burundi after President Pierre Nkurunziza was declared the ruling party's candidate for a third term in office“We regret this significant missed opportunity, but the hard work of building democratic practices and institutions must continue,” acting State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said, accusing the ruling party of disregarding the term-limit provisions of the Arusha Accords. Burundi only emerged from civil war in 2006 and there are fears that Nkurunziza’s effort to cling to power could push the nation back into violence.
