Following the military coup in Mali on Monday, the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States will Thursday hold an Extraordinary Summit on the socio-political situation in that country.
The summit would hold virtually through videoconference, according to a statement on Wednesday from the ECOWAS Commission, titled, ‘Heads of State to hold Extraordinary Summit on the socio-political situation in Mali.’
It read, “The Extra-ordinary Summit was convened following the military coup d’etat in the Republic of Mali.
“ECOWAS has strongly condemned the undemocratic change of government as is against the ECOWAS Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance.
“The Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government has been mediating in the socio-political crises and has held several mediation and peace missions to Mali.”
