Gabon’s constitutional court has called on the prime minister to resign and dissolve the lower house of parliament because they failed to meet an election deadline.

According to the court, the government should have organised twice-delayed legislative elections by 30 April at the latest.

“It is clear that the government has not been able to fulfill the tasks assigned to it,” AFP news agency quotes the court’s head Madeleine Mborantsuo as saying in a statement on Monday.

“The decisions of the constitutional court are not to be commented on. They are to be applied,” Prime Minister Franck Emmanuel Issoze-Ngondet is quoted as saying on national television after the ruling.

The court announced that President Ali Bongo Ondimba would nominate a new team of ministers answerable directly to him.

The upper house of parliament, the Senate, will remain in place under the court’s order and will carry out the powers of the lower house until new ministers until elections are held. No date for the polls has yet been set.

President Ali Bongo’s re-election in 2016, in which he narrowly beat his former brother-in-law Jean Ping, led to opposition accusations of electoral fraud.

He can now run for an unlimited number of terms, after the constitution was amended in January to remove presidential terms limits. The opposition criticised that change as a “power grab”.

Published

An impeachment motion brought against Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has been dropped after the required number of petitioners was not met.



The main crust of the petition was because of international deals Farmaajo had signed with neighbouring Ethiopia and Eritrea. The issue of unilateral appointments in the army and judiciary was also highlighted.
