    Chad’s new military junta on Monday appointed a transitional prime minister, who called for a nationwide effort to speed the return to civilian rule, suspended after the shock battlefield death of veteran leader Idriss Deby Itno.

    The so-called Transitional Military Council (TMC) led by Deby’s 37-year-old son Mahamat named Albert Pahimi Padacke, a distant runner-up in April 11 presidential polls, as prime minister.
