In news from the official Malian news agency Amap, it was announced that Choguel Maiga, who is part of the opposition platform M5-RFP, has been appointed prime minister by Goita.

The claim that Maiga would be appointed Prime Minister came after the extraordinary summit of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) held in Ghana on May 30.

Leaders of ECOWAS countries met after the coup suspended Mali’s membership in the community and demanded the urgent appointment of a civilian prime minister.

Founder of the Patriotic Movement for Innovation, Maiga, 63, was Minister of Industry and Trade from 2002 to 2007, and Minister of Digital Economy and Communications from 2015 to 2016.

Maiga was one of the prominent figures of the opposition platform M5-RFP, which mobilized for the resignation of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, overthrown by the coup of August 18, 2020.

Colonel Goita, who was also behind last year’s coup and served as vice president during the civil transition process, has ordered the detention of many high-ranking officials, including President Bah Ndaw and Prime Minister Moctar Ouane, on the grounds that the cabinet reshuffle in May 24 was not in accordance with procedures.
