FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Mali: February poll in doubt as ECOWAS threatens further sanctions and isolation • FRANCE 24” – below is their description.
Sixteen months after a coup d’état forced the government from power, Mali’s junta is hosting a “National Conference on Reform” to launch talks on a return to civilian rule. Several key political parties have boycotted the widely-criticized event, casting a shadow over the military’s commitment to a democratic transition. Dr. Douglas Yates, Professor of Political Science at the American Graduate School in Paris, joins France 24 and offers a disparaging assessment of the military’s 4-day national forum: “This is a dog and pony show of an illegitimate military coup that’s attempting to legitimize its governance.”
