MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 28th September, 2020) Mali's transitional president, Bah N'Daou, appointed on Sunday former foreign minister Moctar Ouane as Malian Prime Minister for the transitional period.
On August 18, a group of Malian soldiers initiated an uprising at a military base near Bamako. The coup eventually toppled the old government of ex-President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and brought about an inclusive political dialogue, which resulted in the decision to form an 18-month transitional government until new elections are held.
This past Friday, ex-Defense Minister Ba N'Daou was sworn in as the transitional president, while Assimi Goita, the leader of the restive military's agency, the National Committee for the Salvation of the People, was sworn in as vice president.
