ECOWAS suspends Mali over Coup

Leaders of West African nations, meeting in a regional summit Sunday, suspended Mali from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) after a second coup by the Malian military.

Junta leader Col Assimi Goita had declared himself president after ousting the interim president and Prime Minister in what has since been referred to as a second coup.

“The suspension from ECOWAS takes immediate effect until the deadline of the end of February 2022 when they are supposed to hand over to a democratically elected government,” Ghana’s Foreign Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey told reporters.

“One of the decisions of the heads of state is that they should ensure that in the next few days a civilian prime minister is put in place to form the next government,” she added.
