Mali Military Junta Mulls Postponement of Next Year’s Presidential Election

The military junta in Mali has said it will postpone the presidential election that had been scheduled for February.

A government spokesman, Col Abdoulaye Maiga, said a new date would be announced and that parliamentary polls would be held separately.

He said the delay was due to “technical reasons” including issues linked to the adoption of a new constitution and a review of the electoral laws.

Civil society groups and the opposition have expressed their disappointment following this announcement.

The elections were intended to return Mali to constitutional rule after military coups in 2020 and 2021.
