The signatories to the joint statement demanding the release of the two leaders stated the need for political power transfer to Mali to be restored and the process to end within the stipulated timeframe.
Mali’s military ruler Asimi Goita sacked the President and Prime Minister of the interim government on Tuesday and once again took power of the country. Without his permission, the government announced a cabinet reshuffle, after which this action was taken. Goita, as promised, reiterated his resolve to hold a fresh election in 2022, but his show of power points to a military regime that sacked the previously elected Democratic president. Whether the election of intervention will be possible or not.
The move has also raised concerns that the new political unrest may further destabilize efforts to control long-standing Islamic extremism in the West African country. The United Nations spends about $ 1.2 billion annually on peacekeeping missions in Mali. A day before the army’s announcement by the government broadcaster, rebel soldiers arrested the country’s president Bahn N’Dow and Prime Minister Moktor Oune.
ECOWAS demands immediate release
He was taken to the Kati military headquarters on Monday night. Both remained in custody on Tuesday as well. Goita said that the President and Prime Minister took this step without consulting them. The African Union, the United Nations, the West African Regional Group (ECOWAS) and other members of the international community demanded immediate release.
Those who signed a joint statement demanding the release of the two leaders, stated the need for political power transfer to be restored in Mali and to end the process within the stipulated timeframe. The two leaders were sworn in in September last year. The ruling military rulers then agreed to transfer power to the civilian government under international pressure.
The delegation will visit Bamako
The statement said that the international community opposes all actions, including the forced resignation. He said that this imprudent decision of today will prevent the international community from coming to Mali’s support in future. According to the joint statement, a delegation from Ecowas will visit Bamako on Tuesday.
