Houngbo re-appointed

Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe has re-appointed Prime Minister Gilbert Houngbo, who resigned two days ago, a presidential decree said on Friday.



"The president of the republic has renewed his confidence in Gilbert Fossoun Houngbo by deciding to re-appoint him prime minister and head of government," according to a statement published by the State House in Lomé.



Houngbo, a former UN Development Programme director for Africa, tendered his resignation on Wednesday, two days after Gnassingbe was sworn in for a second five-year term in office.



He will hold "consultations and talks with the entire political class with a view to forming a new government", the text said.



Houngbo, who has been prime minister since September 2008, was asked to stay on in a caretaker capacity until a new government is installed.
