She was appointed as the nation's first female vice-president by Gabon's president, Ali Bongo Odimba.
Before the nomination, Raponda was the Prime Minister.
The 59-year-old was also the Defence Minister and Mayor of Libreville, the country's capital.
She makes history a second time by occupying a position that has been empty since 2019 in this way.
She was appointed as the nation's first female Prime Minister in July 2020.
This year's presidential elections will take place in several African nations, including Gabon.
Late last year, the Gabonese Democratic Party (GDP), the country's ruling party, had a congress at which it was demanded that the Head of State run for a third term.
