The June 5th Movement-Agrupación de Fuerzas Patrióticas (M5-RFP), the opposition alliance behind the demonstrations in recent months to call for the resignation of the President of Mali, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, has shown its readiness with the military junta coup d’état who forced the president to leave power for a transition in the country on Tuesday.
In a statement, the opposition movement, whose most visible face is the prominent Imam Mahmud Dicko, “congratulated” itself on Keita’s departure and “took note of the commitment to open a civil transition” expressed by the US government’s military coup leaders National People’s Salvation Committee (CNSP) without approving the coup.
According to the M5-RFP, the intervention of the military, led by Colonel Assimi Goita, “ended the struggle of the Malian people to resign” from Keita and his government, which he has again accused of being “bloody, incompetent” and corrupt. “
He has assured that “he will take all possible initiatives so that Mali” can begin a real re-establishment of its political and government system with the CNSP and all forces in the country through a republican transition and the preparation of a roadmap, the content of which will be agreed. “
