Burkina Faso political alliance rejects electoral calendar

Burkina Faso political alliance rejects electoral calendar

Ouagadougou, Jun 30 (Prensa Latina) A national political alliance here today rejected the electoral calendar set by the transitional authorities for February 25, 2025, considering that it lacks due consensus among political actors.

“Our Alliance rejects this unilateral approach by which the government grants itself the right to set the electoral agenda in a non-consensual manner. Before being a technical issue, the election is an eminently political issue,” the group said in a statement.

Without prior notice, the Prime Minister, Albert Ouédraogo, summoned political representatives to his office yesterday to inform him of the date of the elections.

Elections will define the return to the democratic path after the coup d’état of the transitional president, lieutenant colonel Paul-Henry Damiba, last January 24 against the president Roch Marc Kaboré.

“It is important to remind this government that no legitimacy can replace that of the Burkinabe people and their attachment to democracy and respect for its principles.

In addition to rejecting the electoral program, the signatories maintained their position that the transition period should not exceed 24 months.

They also asked the authorities to treat socio-political actors with more respect, as this could contribute to social cohesion.
