From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kadré Désiré Ouedraogo (born 1953) served as Prime Minister of Burkina Faso from 6 February 1996 to 7 November 2000. Since 2001, Ouedraogo has been ambassador to the United Kingdom.

Ouedraogo was Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO) until he was appointed as Prime Minister by President Blaise Compaoré on 6 February 1996; at the time of his appointment he had no political affiliation.[1] Following the May 1997 parliamentary election, Compaoré reappointed Ouedraogo as Prime Minister on 7 June 1997, with a new government appointed on 10 June.[2] After Compaoré was re-elected in the November 1998 presidential election, Ouedraogo and his government resigned on 8 January 1999. Compaoré again reappointed Ouedraogo as Prime Minister on 11 January with few changes in the composition of his government. By this time Ouedraogo was a member of the ruling party, the Congress for Democracy and Progress (CDP).[3]

Later, after Ouedraogo and his government resigned, he was replaced by Paramanga Ernest Yonli on 7 November 2000.[4]
