Allamaye Halina becomes Chad’s new PM

Chad’s political landscape has shifted with the appointment of Allamaye Halina as the new Prime Minister.

President Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno announced the decision on Thursday, according to a presidential press release.

Halina, a seasoned diplomat and former director general of state protocol, faces the immediate task of forming a new government “as quick as possible,” the release stated.

This appointment follows the resignation of opposition leader Succes Masra on Wednesday, who stepped down to pave the way for a new administration.

The development comes just hours after Deby was sworn in for a new five-year term as president.

He secured victory in the May 6th presidential election.

The focus now shifts to Halina’s ability to form a new government and address the challenges facing Chad.
