Guelleh Re-Appoints Prime Minister

Djibouti's President Ismail Omar Guelleh on Saturday re-appointed the country's current prime minister to the post as the tiny Horn of Africa nation prepares to form a new government, state media said.

"Dileita Mohamed Dileita has been named prime minister for the Republic of Djibouti," read the decree signed by Guelleh who was elected to a second six-year term as president last month in a one-man election.

The prime minister is expected, in consultation with the president, to soon form a new government following the April 8 polls that were boycotted by the opposition.

Dileita was first appointed Djibouti's prime minister in 2001 after serving as the country's ambassador to Ethiopia between 1997 and 2001.
