Mali: Military forces announce new elections "after a reasonable period of time" following coup

Mali's Air Force Chief Ismail Wague, on behalf of a "National Committee for the Rescue of the People", announced the military's plan for new elections "after a reasonable period of time" during a TV address. "We do not want to hold on to power, but to the stability of the country," said the General. Mali should be equipped with "strong institutions" that would restore the people's confidence in their government. A transitional government should be appointed and new elections organized.
