Mali’s military junta expects a small delay to presidential elections scheduled for February due to technical reasons, it said on Monday, promising a new timeline at a later date.
Mali had been expected to hold the first round of the vote on February 4, 2024, and a second round two weeks later.
The junta’s statement said the decision to delay the vote – meant to return Mali to constitutional rule after military coups in August 2020 and May 2021 – was due to several factors including a dispute with a French firm over a civil registry data base.
