Mali military agrees to 18-month transition government
The military junta in Mali has agreed to an 18-month transition government.
The head of the junta, Colonel Assimi Goita, pledged on Saturday to establish an 18-month transition government.
He spoke 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.
