The army-dominated interim government of Mali is set to form a new “broad-based” cabinet.
Malian Prime Minister, Moctar Ouane is to be in charge of the reshuffling.
According to the transitional president, Bah Ndaw, Ouane had resigned on Friday but was immediately reappointed.
TOS News gathered that the prime minister has started consultations.
Ouane was named prime minister after military officers in August removed the elected President, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita; he pledged to reform the constitution and stage elections within 18 months.
Last week, Goodluck Jonathan, former Nigerian president and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) mediator for Mali warned that there was little time left to complete the reforms.
A constitutional referendum is to be held on October 31, with elections to follow in February 2022 according to the interim government.
The opposition has called for the dissolution of the transitional government and demanded “a more law-abiding and more legitimate” body.
