Two days after the appointment of Saleh Kebzabo as Prime Minister, Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno formalized on October 14 the composition of the Chadian government of national unity. The Head of State notably chose to appoint Mahamat Saleh Annadif to the post of Minister of Foreign Affairs, which he had occupied under Idriss Déby Itno, between 1997 and 2003. This seasoned diplomat worked in recent years for the General Secretariat of the United Nations, of which he was the representative in West Africa and in the Sahel.
Another important recruit: Tom Erdimi. The former rebel, freshly freed from Egypt and back since September in N’Djamena, has been appointed Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation. Among the other entrants to the government are notably the opponents Laoukein Kouyaro Médard (Production and Transformation agriculture), Mahamat Ahmat Alhabo (Justice) and the former chief of staff of Idriss then of Mahamat Déby Itno, Aziz Mahamat Saleh (Communication, spokesperson).
Continuity in Finance and Security
The military destinies of the country remain in the hands of General Daoud Yaya Brahim, appointed Minister for the Armed Forces, and who will continue to be the confidant of the Head of State in the Defense sector. Another general, Idriss Dokony Adiker, retains his post in Public Security, as does Tahir Hamid Nguilin in Finance, and Djerassem Le Bemadjiel au Oil.
