Ali Mahaman Lamine Zeine, the recently designated prime minister, will head a group of 21 fresh ministers to constitute the incoming administration.

The military leadership made this announcement via national television on Thursday, a fortnight after overthrowing President Mohamed Bazoum in a coup.

ECOWAS convened a session in Abuja, Nigeria, on Thursday to discuss strategies for reinstating democracy in Niger.
