The decision comes two weeks after President Blaise Compaore was ousted in a military coup.

The transitional government will be tasked with bringing the country back to civilian rule and getting it ready for elections.

Compaore was forced to resign on October 31 following mass protests against a move to change the constitution in order to extend his long-standing leadership.

“Today was the day of compromise,” Herve Kam, a member of the Balai Citoyen civil society group, said. Both soldiers and civilians agree on a civilian transition. The institutions of the transition will be led by civilians.”
