Civil Societies in Chad are calling for public protests to demand the dissolution of the Transitional Military Council, which is headed by the new leader General Mahamat Idriss Déby.

One Leader of the Civil Societ groups Max Loalngar called on the Chadian population to take to the streets on Tuesday for a public demonstration, until they are listened to.

Addressing a Press conference on Saturday, Loalngar said they were putting themselves under the protection of the African Union and the United Nations and ask that mechanisms be urgently set into motion to ensure the protection of citizens.

He also called for a comprehensive and inclusive dialogue to build a consensual transition and to create conditions for a lasting political handover.

General Mahamat Idriss Déby was appointed following the shocking death of his father President Idriss Déby, who died this week after battling rebels on the frontline.

France and regional allies have backed the fallen president’s son to take power But the opposition does not want the former colonial ruler meddling in its affairs.

France has been a key ally in the fight against deadly insurgencies in the Sahel and has some 5,100 troops stationed in the region. But Macron also called on the newly-appointed military government to foster stability, inclusion, dialogue and democratic transition.
