Gabon: ECCAS announces an agreement for the return to constitutional order

The Central African President, Faustin Archange Touadéra, mediator of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), announced that the military authorities in Gabon have accepted the development of a “road map” with a view to a rapid return to constitutional order.

Faustin Archange Touadéra, ECCAS mediator, revealed that the military authorities in Gabon have agreed to the development of a “roadmap” aimed at quickly restoring constitutional order in the country. This announcement was made on Gabonese state television, although precise details regarding the timing and content of this roadmap have not yet been disclosed.

The Central African president visited Libreville as part of his mediation mission, affirming his commitment to engaging in talks with all Gabonese stakeholders and international partners to guarantee a rapid return to constitutional legality.

ECCAS had previously announced the suspension of Gabon from all its authorities following the military coup that occurred on August 30, during which General Brice Oligui Nguema took power, overthrowing President Ali Bongo, who had just claimed his victory in the presidential election of August 26. General Oligui Nguema was sworn in before the members of the Constitutional Court, thus becoming president of the country for a transition period, without a precise duration being set.
