Guinea Bissau PM to resign as appointment ruled unconstitutional

ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Guinea Bissau’s Prime Minister Baciro Dja said on Wednesday that he would submit his resignation after the Supreme Court ruled that his appointment by the president last month violated the West African nation’s constitution.

“I will draw the political consequences (from the ruling) by drafting my letter of resignation which I will submit to the head of state,” Dja told journalists.
