    Rwandan Minister of Foreign Affairs Louise Mushikiwabo was elected Secretary General of the International Organization of la Francophonie (OIF) by consensus on Friday in Yerevan, Armenia.

    The election of Louise Mushikiwabo, 57, for a four-year term was held during a closed session of the 17thSummit of La Francophonie held in the Armenian capital.

    She is taking over from Canadian Michaëlle Jean, who is leaving the OIF after a single term, following her election in 2014 in Dakar, Senegal.
