Chad’s opposition calls for protests.

The opposition in Chad has urged the public to turn up on Tuesday for a protest against the ruling military council.

The chairman of the Transformateurs party, Succès Masra, and other members of the Wakit Tama coalition want an inclusive dialogue and transfer of power to civilians.

The military council on Monday appointed a civilian prime minister – Albert Pahimi Padacké who had once been in the same post under President Idriss Déby – but the opposition wants a fully civilian government.

The coalition members and civil society organisations met on Monday morning, French public broadcaster RFI reported.

Chad’s President Idriss Déby died on the battlefield a week ago and a military council led by his son took over.
