Mali’s military junta has called for citizens to go to the streets on Friday to protest regional sanctions imposed because of the Sahel state’s postponed elections. Border bans and a trade embargo are among the measures that might damage an already destitute country’s economy. After mounting a coup in August 2020, Mali’s army vowed to hold elections in February 2022. However, it proposed staying in power for up to another five years in December, citing security concerns. Many people in Mali have rallied behind the army-led administration and Colonel Assimi Goita, its commander. Mali’s High Islamic Council and the country’s largest press organization have both issued comments in support of the junta.
