African Union (AU) Commission Chairperson Moussa Faki Mahamat on Saturday expressed concern over the Malian government’s blanket ban on political parties.

In a press release, Faki said he was greatly concerned by the Malian government’s decree suspending all activities of political parties and citizen associations.

The statement also said the suspension of political parties and citizen associations in Mali is likely to hinder the implementation of an inclusive transition process in the West African country.

The AU Commission chief called on the Malian authorities to reconsider their recent decision and to work on a roadmap aimed at completing the ongoing transition process.

The AU statement further said, “The chairperson of the AU Commission reaffirms the continued support of the AU to the Malian peoples and reiterates the continental body’s desire to work with the Malian transitional government and all Malian stakeholders to restore constitutional order within the prescribed deadlines, with a view to promoting lasting peace, stability, and development in Mali.”

The Malian government announced Wednesday that it has indefinitely suspended all political activities in the country.
