President of Guinea-Bissau names new PM, triggering protests

Baciro Dja (pictured) was named as Guinea-Bissau's new prime ministerTwo weeks after sacking his entire government, the president of Guinea-Bissau named Baciro Dja as the west African country’s new prime minister, in a move that triggered immediate protests from the ruling party. Dja’s appointment, announced by presidential decree, was swiftly condemned by the ruling African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC), whose supporters set fire to tyres near the presidential palace, an AFP reporter at the scene said. The PAIGC said it refused to recognise a head of government appointed by the president, saying the choice of prime minister was up to the majority party in parliament according to the constitution.
