The European Union’s foreign policy phief, Josep Borrell Fontelle has pledged the support of EU to Mali as it undergoes a transition to an elected government following last year’s military coup.
This was made known on Saturday in Bamako during a dialogue held with Mali’s top leaders.
The transition, Fontelles, said should be historical.
He further stated it will serve as a basis for the new Mali, with a process and a calendar that should be followed, with elections, structural reforms, and good governance.
Young military officers ousted President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita on August 18 after months of protest driven by his failure to solve Mali’s long-running jihadist conflict, and perceived corruption.
Presidential and legislative elections are due to take place in Mali in February 2022.
