[pan Liang, special correspondent of global times in France] within 24 hours, the political situation of Mali, a West African country, has experienced a “lightning” transformation. According to Agence France Presse reported on the 19th that Malian president Keita resigned and dissolved Parliament hours after both Prime Minister Cisse were arrested by rebels. The United Nations, the European Union, the African Union and the United States have issued statements condemning the mutiny in Mali and calling for the immediate release of keta. At 3 a.m. on the 19th, the deputy chief of staff of the Malian air force, who called himself “the spokesman of the army,” said that Mali had been in a state of chaos, anarchy and insecurity for a long time due to the fault of its leaders. They (soldiers) hope to carry out a “civil political transition” to facilitate a new general election. According to Agence France Presse, Malian soldiers launched a military coup in Kati, a garrison town 15 kilometers west of the capital Bamako, and arrested kata and Prime Minister Cisse in the late afternoon. After the mutineers took control of the Kati barracks and the nearby streets, the convoy continued to move towards the capital. In Bamako, they were welcomed by many protestors, who gathered near Independence Square to demand the president step down. The attorney general’s house was also occupied and burned. < p > < p > at about 0:00 on the 19th, Kata, wearing a mask and looking very tired, delivered a short television speech. He said: “if there are people in our armed forces today who want to end all this through forced intervention, do I have a choice?” “Thanks to the Malian people for their support over the years, I am resigning from this moment on,” keta said. According to Le Monde, Kata was elected president by a landslide in 2013 and was re elected in 2018. However, due to the slow political reform and sluggish economy in Mali, the domestic opposition to him is growing. Internationally, however, Mali is seen as a strong line of defense against the threat of extremist groups. As one of the poorest countries in the world, 40% of Mali’s population lives in extreme poverty. Since June, a large number of demonstrations have spread across the country, demanding that Keita step down. According to the guardian, France, the United States and the UN Security Council have deployed a large number of troops and peacekeeping forces in Mali, but extremist groups are also growing in the region. It is not realistic for the military to gain more influence in government through elections in the current environment.
