politics and government of
Burundi

In 2007 the Government of Burundi consisted of a 20-member Council of Ministers appointed by the President. The Council of Ministers, together with the President and Vice-Presidents, forms the executive branch of government in the country.

The constitution, which enshrines ethnically-based power-sharing, requires that 60% of ministers come from the ethnic Hutu majority while the remaining 40% come from the ethnic Tutsi minority. At least 30% of government ministers must be women.

Members of President Pierre Nkurunziza's government were announced on 14 November 2007.[1] The government consisted of 12 men (8 Hutus and 4 Tutsis) and 8 women (6 Hutus and 2 Tutsis). The ethnic composition was 14 Hutus and 6 Tutsis. A new government was announced on August 29, 2010.
