Burkina: Eddie Komboïgo nominated as presidential candidate for CDP party

Published on

Eddie Komboïgo was elected, on Sunday, 10 May 2020, as the candidate of the Congress for Democracy and Progress (CDP) for the presidential election of November 22, 2020 with one-hundred and thirty-three votes against twenty-one for his competitor, Yaya Zoungrana.

Carried in May 2015 at the head of the CDP, a year after popular uprisings which led to the departure of Blaise Compaoré from power, Eddie Komboïgo, holds the rudder of the party. At its seventh ordinary congress, the party decided to regain state power.

With one-hundred and thirty members from the national executive office, the CDP has rebuilt its basic committees and created a network across the territory to mobilise activists and sympathisers with a view to returning to power.

This battle promises to be epic and thrilling. The leaders of the People’s Movement for Progress ( MPP, ruling party), founded by Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, a former executive of Blaise Compaoré’s party, know their main political opponents well, especially the CDP.
