Burkina reinstates constitution


OUAGADOUGOU: Burkina Faso took a significant step toward the return of civilian rule on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) as the military announced the reinstatement of the country’s constitution which had been suspended with the president’s ouster. At the same time the signing of an agreement for a transitional civilian government has been pushed back by a day for “technical” reasons, a military source said. Lieutenant Colonel Issac Zida, the army-installed leader after the October 31 resignation of president Blaise Compaore, issued a statement saying the suspension of the constitution “has been lifted to allow for the civilian transition process now under way,” and to prepare the return to normal constitutional rule.
