Front for Democracy in Burundi–Nyakuri

The Front for Democracy in Burundi–Nyakuri (FRODEBU-Nyakuri), also known as Sahwanya Frodebu Iragi rya Ndadaye, is a political party in Burundi.

HistoryEdit

The party was established in June 2008 as a breakaway from the Front for Democracy in Burundi by Jean Minani and eleven other party members.[1][2] Supportive of the governing CNDD–FDD, it took the name "Nyakuri", meaning "genuine".[1]

Although the 2010 parliamentary elections were boycotted by the opposition, FRODEBU-Nyakuri contested the elections, winning five of the 106 seats in the National Assembly.
