On October 14, the national meetings open during which representatives of the army, the police, religious organizations, civil society, must designate a new president of transition.

In Bobo-Dioulasso, they made it known on the eve of the opening of this major event: on October 13, dozens of young people demonstrated on the main arteries of the city perched on their motorbikes, whistles in their mouths. They ordered traders to close their shops and join the demonstrators, or failing that, to return home. A rally with a similar slogan, but on a smaller scale, took place at Place de la Nation, in Ouagadougou.
