NIMD condemns the apparent military take-over of the Malian government and the removal of President Touré as head of state this morning (22 March 2012). NIMD regrets this clear setback to the democratic process of the country. The scheduled elections for the new president are only a month away.
On 18-19 April 2011 NIMD organized a 2-day workshop in Bamako, Mali for all registered political parties. The workshop focused on improving parties’ capacity to develop realistic election manifestos in the preparation for the 2012 elections.
