Situation remains calm in Mali: UNDP Resident RepresentativeListen / The current atmosphere in Mali is very calm, according to Aurelien Agbenonci, the UNDP Resident Representative in the country.
Mr. Agbenonci says following the 28 July elections, people have been going about their usual business, there is no tension and they are expecting the results from the ministry in charge of the election.
He believes the election will help reunite Mali which in the past 18 months has experienced an armed rebellion in the north, a military coup and French intervention.
“After the Ouagadougou agreement, the election for me constitutes an important milestone to really reunite the country because you cannot complete the job with a transitional government.”
