Chad’s Prime Minister Albert Pahimi Padacke has resigned to pave-way for a new Government, the President’s office said on Tuesday.
Padacke, a civilian politician, was appointed Prime Minister of a transitional Military Government in 2021 after President Mahamat Idriss Deby seized power in the wake of his father’s death.
The Military council led by Deby was initially meant to rule for 18 months, but the Country announced it would push back Democratic Elections until around October 2024.
Deby was sworn in on Monday as president for the new transition phase and is expected to appoint a new premier.
Padacke had served as Prime Minister from 2016 to 2018 and was seen as an ally of former President Idriss Deby, who ruled Chad for 30 years until his death in April 2021.
