Gabon: PM resigns after court ruling

Gabonese Prime Minister Emmanuel Issoze-Ngondet’s government has resigned after court ordered it to step down over election delays,newsdairyonline reports.

The constitutional court of the country decided on Monday to end the rights of the National Assembly, or the lower house of the parliament, and recommended the resignation of the government.

The court’s decision resulted from the government failure to organise the Central African nation’s parliamentary elections two years after the expiry of the deputies’ mandate.

The National Assembly was dissolved to prevent parliamentarians from sitting for an additional term without being re-elected.

Gabonese President Ali Ondimba is free to renew his prime minister’s mandate or to appoint another person until new elections are held.
