Guinea junta leader appoints civilian prime minister


Guinea’s military leader has named former civil servant Mohamed Beavogui as prime minister to oversee transition to civilian rule following last month’s coup.

His appointment was announced on Wednesday in a decree read during a televised press conference.

68 year old Beavogui is an agricultural finance expert related to Diallo Tellia – a former Guinean diplomat who served as the first secretary-general of the Organisation of African Unity.

Leader of the coup, Col Mamady Doumbouya who was sworn in as the interim president last week has promised to organise free, credible and transparent elections but did not say when.
