N'DJAMENA, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Interim President of Central African Republic Michel Djotodia has resigned, the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) said in a statement on Friday.

The country's prime minister Nicolas Tiangaye has also resigned, according to the statement, which came after a two-day summit held in Chad where regional leaders urged the transition authorities in Bangui to put in more efforts towards achieving peace.

"If they (the transition authorities) cannot put in more efforts, then they should resign and leave those who are capable of bringing stability to take over in accordance with the transition government," ECCAS secretary general Ahmat Allami told Xinhua on Thursday.
