Opposition parties, civil society groups and religious leaders in Burkina Faso agreed on Sunday a plan for a return to civilian rule which they intend to present to the interim military leader this week.

Lieutenant Colonel Isaac Zida declared himself head on state following last months popular uprising ousting the country’s president Blaise Compaore.

The document calls for the creation of a 90-member transitional parliament and an interim government which will guide the country to full elections.

Neither the military nor the political allies of the ousted president took part in Sunday’s discussions.
