STATEMENT BY THE PAN-AFRICAN PARLIAMENT ON THE SITUATION IN MALI
JOHANNESBURG, South-Africa, March 22, 2012/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- The President of Pan-African Parliament (PAP), Hon. Dr. Moussa Idriss Ndélé, MP continues to follow with increasing concern the unfolding events in Mali.
He strongly condemns, in the name of the PAP, all forms of violence and the unconstitutional attempts by some elements of the Malian Army to seize power by force.
The PAP believes that the current government of President Amadou Toumani Touré is the legitimate and constitutionally elected government of the Republic of Mali, which can only be replaced through the normal processes of free and fair elections as stipulated in the Malian Constitution and according to the provisions of the African Charter on Democracy Elections and Governance.
