More than 20 Malian political groups and civil society organisations met on Sunday (31 March) to issue a joint declaration to organise a presidential election and set a date on the basis that the transition period has ended.

According to the former minister, Amadou Koïta, of a Malian socialist party, Yelen Kura, the transitional period began on the 26 March 2022, initially set for 18 months and was later extended and expected to end last Tuesday (26 March).

The groups call for the transitional authorities to create the legal and institutional means necessary to ensure that the country returns to its normal constitutional order, ensuring political stability and sustainable development.

Mali has undergone executive coups since 2020, which Colonel Assimi Goïta has led. He is the current interim president of Mali.

During his interim rule, Goïta has engaged in several foreign policy changes. He, alongside the leaders of Burkina Faso and Niger, Captain Ibrahim Traoré and Abdourahamane Tchiani formed the Alliance of Sahel States(AES) on the 16 September 2023 and on the 28 January 2024, the troika announced their withdrawal from ECOWAS.

Under his interim rule, Mali has also strengthened its relationship with Russia while limiting ties with former colonial ruler France.

Since November of 2023, Mali has signed two major economic deals with Russia:(a) to build a gold refinery in Mali’s capital, Bamako, and (b) to collaborate with Russian company Rosatom to explore minerals and produce nuclear energy.
