Bah Ndaw, a retired colonel and former defense minister, will lead Mali before civilians return to the country’s chief. This decision was taken by the power union since the coup on August 18 and Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta was overthrown.
For the rest of this issue, Alassane Ouattara’s candidacy for a third presidential term in Côte d’Ivoire continues to cause tensions: former President Henri Konan Bédié calls for “civil disobedience”. The opposition leader condemns the “confiscation” of President Ouattara’s candidacy, which he considers unconstitutional.
Finally, five million ballot papers were handed over to Guinea on Saturday for the October 18 presidential election. Like his counterpart to the Ivorian Republic, Guinea’s President Alpha Condé, who will run for a third term, has been criticized by the opposition.
