Mahamat Kamoun, a former special advisor to interim president Catherine Samba-Panza, will lead a transitional government that is seeking to implement a precarious ceasefire signed late last month. An expert in finance, Kamoun was the director general of the treasury under former president Francois Bozize, in power from 2003 to March 2013. He is the first Muslim to serve as prime minister in the Central African Republic since it gained independence from France in 1960.
