United Nations: UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon has hailed the adoption of an agreement on one-year civilian-led transition, calling on all parties in the country to rapidly decide who will lead the transition.

Ban encouraged all parties to continue using dialogue to reach an agreement on "an eminent civilian personality" to lead the transitional process, Xinhua quoted UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric as saying at a daily briefing held here Thursday.

Political parties in Burkina Faso have agreed that the civilian- led transition should last a year, followed by democratic elections in November 2015.
