On behalf of the American people, U.S. Ambassador to Burkina Faso Sandra Clark congratulates President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré on his reelection and looks forward to a continued vibrant partnership with his new government for a prosperous and democratic future.
“ The United States commends the people of Burkina Faso for the peaceful conduct of their November 22 presidential and legislative elections,” Ambassador Clark said. “ Burkinabe voters participated in their country’s democratic process despite security challenges and expressed their will for the future at the ballot box. A vibrant democracy is a strong defense against extremist forces that seek to undermine the country’s values.”
Burkina Faso’s civil society played a key role by helping to prepare for and monitor the elections and electoral environment. Independent election observers were unobstructed in monitoring the voting process.
