Mali Military Concurs To ECOWAS 12 Months Transition Plan

The military junta in Mali has consented to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)’s 12 months transition programme.

The junta had insisted on a military rule for three years after ousting President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and the ECOWAS also stood on a 12-month deadline for the proposed transition.

A declaration made available to reporters on Saturday after a video conference involving the heads of government; the ECOWAS Mediator, former President Goodluck Jonathan; and the Mali coupists revealed that the junta has settled for the formation of a civilian transitional government in the next 12 months.

The Malian military leadership was mandated to immediately begin the process for a civilian transition in consultation with the Constitutional Court and all relevant parties and stakeholders.

ECOWAS urged them to take into account the appointment of a transition president that “he/she should be a civilian and known for his/her professional qualities as well as intellectual and moral probity and shall be responsible for leading the transition.

“The transition president will not stand as a candidate in the next presidential election.”

The summit took note of Keita’s decision to resign and also welcomed his release, as well as the other detained government officials.
