President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, who was re-elected last month, will be sworn in for his second term on 28 December, 2020, in Ouagadougou.
“Roch Marc Christian Kaboré is personally following the preparations for this ceremony. He made a trip to the Palais des Sports in Ouaga 2000 on Monday, to see the progress of work,” the Presidency said in a statement.
Re-elected with 57.74 per cent in the first round of voting on 22 November, he will make a new commitment with his compatriots before the Constitutional Council.
“The challenge of this election has been met because the elections were held in a transparent, democratic and peaceful atmosphere, a sign of political maturity of the Burkinabe people,” the Presidency said.
The ceremony will be attended by several heads of state, representatives of international institutions and heads of diplomatic missions. (PANA/NAN)
