Bah Ndaw introduced as Mali’s interim president

Bah Ndaw, the previous Malian guard serve, was on Monday named between time president.

Colonel Assimi Goita, who drove the military overthrow in August that toppled President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, was delegated VP.

The men took up the positions following a choice of a 17-part board picked by the junta to supervise a 18-month progress before decisions. Goita said on state TV that he and Ndaw would be confirmed on Friday.

The arrangement of the 70-year-old resigned colonel as Keita’s substitution may conciliate pioneers of the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas) which a week ago took steps to venture up monetary authorizes and force an absolute ban on the nation if its conditions were not met.


Ecowas had requested that regular people fill in as between time president and PM.

They said they would acknowledge a trooper as VP inasmuch as he is ineligible to supplant the president.

Goita didn’t state whether the VP would stay next-in-line to the administration as specified in a temporary sanction affirmed in multi-party talks not long ago.

Ndaw filled in as an assistant to Mali’s previous military ruler Moussa Traoré. He was top of Mali’s aviation based armed forces and guard serve under Keita in 2014.

Pioneers of the M5-RFP alliance that composed mass fights against Keita before the overthrow – and has since fought with the junta about the military’s part in the change – flagged uphold for Ndaw.

“He is a man of guideline, a supporter, a man of confidence and a patriot who adores his nation,” said Nouhoum Togo, a M5-RFP representative, who worked for Ndaw at the safeguard service. “He isn’t manipulable.”
