ECOWAS Call For Peaceful Elections in Mali, Guinea Bissau, Togo

The 43rd ordinary session of the authority of the heads of state and government of the Economic Community of West African states (ECOWAS) rounded off on Thursday in Abuja with an appeal to all political parties, candidates and their followers in Mali, Guinea Bissau and Togo to ensure the conduct of peaceful elections.

Elections are scheduled to take place in these three countries which has raised concerns over the rush to conduct post war elections.

Cote d’Ivoire’s President and chairman of the ECOWAS, Alsanne Watara told journalists in Abuja that Mali cannot continue with a transitional government, therefore a democratically elected leader must emerge.

Other highlights of the communique of the meeting which had 13 heads of West African states and governments in attendance include deepening regional integration to boost economic trade and combating terrorism with all appropriate measures.
