Gabon’s new rulers, led by General Brice Oligui Nguema, have appointed Raymond Ndong Sima as the prime minister during a transitional period. Ndong Sima expressed that a “reasonable objective” is to have free elections within two years, but the exact duration might vary. Nguema, now in charge, pledged to return the country to civilian rule through elections, without specifying the exact transition length. Ndong Sima, an economist, previously served as prime minister and later competed against the former president, Ali Bongo Ondimba, in elections.
