The military Government in Mali has postponed presidential elections initially planned for February 2024, without giving viable reasons.
The elections were meant to be held on February 4, 2024, with a second round two weeks later.
Government spokesperson, Abdoulaye Maiga who refused to announce a new date for elections, only cited new rules from the constitution that was approved at a referendum in June and a review of the electoral roll.
Mali is also locked in a dispute with French company, Idemia that operates the country’s census database.
Recall, a constitutional referendum planned for February 2023 was not held until June, while local elections planned for June have still not taken place.
