West Africa Leaders Say Mali Junta Must Name A President By September 15 by Nemere2020: 8:58am On Sep 08
West Africa's regional leaders have given the military junta in Mali until Sept. 15 to name a transitional president and a prime minister, according to a statement read at the end of a summit on Monday.

The heads of state of the 15-nation Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) said the president and prime minister, who will lead the transitional government, should be civilians.

The bloc, seeking to keep pressure on the junta, maintained sanctions it had placed on Mali, but welcomed steps taken by the junta in the past week to start talks with Mali's political parties and civil society groups over the transition.

The ECOWAS union has closed its borders with landlocked Mali and halted financial flows amid concerns from some West African leaders the military coup could undermine their power and democratic gains in the region.

A group of army colonels has ruled Mali since ousting President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita on Aug. 18. No consensus has yet been reached on the make-up and duration of a transitional government ahead of promised elections.

ECOWAS is calling for a swift return to civilian rule and a vote within a year, a timeline the junta, the National Committee for the Salvation of the People (CNSP), has not committed to.

ECOWAS Commission President Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, said both the president and prime minister must be appointed by Sept. 15 at the latest.

Talks in the capital Bamako about the transition period got off to a bumpy start on Saturday, when supporters of the influential M5-RFP political coalition accused the junta of sidelining them.

International powers fear continued political turmoil will further destabilise Mali and undermine a joint fight against Islamist militants in the wider Sahel region.

The junta's negotiations, which are also being held in regional capitals across Mali, will continue later this week.

The military junta that ousted the former president even appears to be bereft of any idea of how to move the country forward.

They wanted power, now they have it but don’t know what to do with it.

Something seems to be fundamentally wrong with leadership in Africa.

September, 15...

That's way too close a date to be able to put things in perfect, working order. They should be given more time in order not to rush things. If they rush things, it might lead to more chaos. ECOWAS should understand this.

Besides, the guys are looking to stay until 2022 or 2023. smiley

Besides, I can already start to hear the discordant tunes coming from the opposition parties who were initially hailing the junta. I have seen this a million times over. First, there is a coup, then the opposition hails it, and some days down the line after the coupists have shown their hands, the same opposition parties begin to grumble.

It is a familiar script.

This is a fantastic development. Civilian majority rule must not be compromised in this region. Let fair elections that reflect the wishes of the majority of the electorate, continue to take deep root.

I remember when Zimbabwe had their issue, no noise, no killings, no anyhow talk in and outside the Country and everything was brought back to normal in no time.

The Military should give its self brain.

General Buhari is both a military and civilian coupist. Allasane Ouattara of CoteD'ivoire who fought Gbagbo out of power is now positioning himself for a third term. All these useless African rulers have no moral right to disturb the new Mali Junta. Some of them are even worse than those Military guys in Mali.
