Rapport Afrique N°224 | 17 avril 2015

Synthèse

Les élections qui doivent avoir lieu de fin mai à août 2015 vont être décisives pour l’avenir du Burundi. Sont en jeu non seulement le devenir de l’équipe au pouvoir (le président Pierre Nkurunziza envisage de briguer un troisième mandat) mais aussi et surtout le maintien de l’accord d’Arusha comme fondation de la paix au Burundi. Les mobilisations populaires et le précédent de la chute du président au Burkina Faso laissent augurer une confrontation dans la rue en cas de passage en force de Nkurunziza.
