Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita announced on Saturday the dissolution of the Constitutional Court after the recent protests that ended the attacks on the country’s headquarters.
“I have decided to repeal the decree appointing the remaining members of the Constitutional Court and to implement the recommendations of the Mission of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS),” the president announced in a statement to their social networks.
In this way, he said that after the court’s dissolution next week, they will begin to request the competent authorities to appoint other members so that “soon a restored court will help us find solutions to the conflict caused by the general election” .
Keita has also denounced Friday’s “vandalism”, the “destruction” of the National Assembly and the “occupation” of the state television station. In addition, it was alleged that the “rule of law and fundamental freedoms” will be preserved with this renewal.
