The new CNDD junta has named the banker Kabiné Komara as the country's new prime minister. He has been an executive at the African Export-Import Bank in Cairo. Komara appears to enjoy a good reputation in the country. His name was on a list of potential prime ministers submitted by trade unions to then-head of state Lansana Conté during the general strike of early 2007.
