“We have come to the common conclusion that it is more urgent, easier and more appropriate to stick to the political dialogue conclusions, namely to maintain the single date of November 22nd for the parliamentary and presidential elections,” said opposition leader Zéphirin Diabré, who is also co-chair of the political dialogue process.
