Sylvie Baïpo-Témon, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Central African Republic as the ECCAS Special Envoy for Gabon.

In this regard, the Commission, in collaboration with ECCAS were requested, to provide the necessary technical support to Gabon to enable the CTRI to draw up a reasonable and acceptable timetable for the transition to constitutional order and transfer of power to civilians. The Chairperson of the Commission, in collaboration with ECCAS, were requested to continue consulting with concerned stakeholders in Gabon on the developments in the country and submit quarterly reports to the Council to inform the decisions of the Council and for the deployment of the requisite support to enable Gabon return to a civilian government.
