Mali: Military Vows To Establish 18-month Transition Govt



Military Coup: Mali Suspended From International Francophone Organisation

Colonel Assimi Goita, the head of Mali’s military junta, on Saturday agreed to establish an 18-month transition government.

He made the pledge at the close of talks on returning the country to civilian rule following last month’s coup.

An expert group appointed by the junta adopted a charter for an 18-month transition government, the president of which would either be a military officer or a civilian.

“We make a commitment before you to spare no effort in the implementation of all these resolutions in the exclusive interest of the Malian people,” Goita said.
