Guinea’s military president Colonel Mamady Doumbouya has appointed a former diplomat, Mohamed Béavogui as prime minister in the transition government.

The one-time United Nations Assistant Secretary General, was named on Wednesday through a presidential decree.

Béavogui, as prime minister, will be the head of the transition government which will be charged with steering the country to civilian rule. He will be responsible for organising local, legislative and presidential elections at a yet to be specified date.

Guinea came under military rule following the September 5 coup in which special forces soldiers led by Col Doumbouya ousted former president Alpha Conde.

The junta has been under pressure by the international community, particularly the African Union and Economic Community of West African States to return the country to civilian rule.

The appointment of Béavogui comes six days after Doumbouya was sworn in as president of the transitional government.
