The working session in the Transitional Legislative Assambly (Parliament) took place behind close doors given the sensitivity of the issue, Le Faso website reported, which had access to the meeting´s initial part.
For the deputies´ leader, Aboubacar Toguyeni, the main objective is for the lawmakers to familiarize themselves with the Strategy, which is being developed by 19 members of a special group sworn in on the 5th by the Prime Minister Albert Ouédraogo, who gave them three weeks to define the roadmap.
The transition authorities mobilized this group to operationalize the anti-terrorist strategy, its coordinator said, retired major colonel Pallé Théodore Naba, during his brief presentation of the missions and activities.
“This strategy was drafted from March to September 2021 and is awaiting adoption. It has not yet been adopted, which means that it can still be improved. Our presentation this morning is also a consultation so that parliamentarians can contribute to its development,” he explained.
The members, which include military and civilians, have already participated in the elaboration of the national strategy against this scourge, placed earlier this month by Ouédraogo as its main course of action.
