Prime minister

Having previously been in exile in Côte d'Ivoire, Touré, who was considered a "reform-minded technocrat", was appointed as Prime Minister by President Lansana Conté [1] on 9 July 1996, becoming Guinea's first Prime Minister since 1984.

Touré's appointment, which followed a coup attempt in February 1996, was characterized as part of an effort by Conté to pursue reforms. However, after a few years of Touré's reformist policies, Conté appeared to change course and dismissed Touré, [1] who was succeeded by Lamine Sidimé on 8 March 1999.
