Declaration by the Presidency on behalf of the European Union on the recent development in Burundi

Declaration by the Presidency on behalf of the European Union on the recent development in Burundi

The European Union welcomes the recent political development in Burundi, and the harmonious atmosphere which seems to reign there. The President’s address to the nation on 27 September lays the foundations for open and inclusive exercise of power, for the benefit of the whole of the Burundian people. The European Union therefore calls on all the political partners in Burundi to respond favourably to this development/message from the Head of State, to enable the institutions to work legitimately and efficiently.

 

The Union hopes that the new foundations which have been laid will enable the Parliament and the Government of Burundi to rise to the pressing challenges of good economic governance. They should also encourage Palipehutu-FNL to rejoin the institutions set up by the agreements of 7 September 2006 without delay.
