Amadou Sanogo, the head of Mali’s military junta, which overthrew the legitimate president two weeks ago, announced the beginning of the process that will transfer power to the head of the National Assembly, the country’s parliament, and that the constitution has been restored in the country.

Thus, Sanogo actually complied with requirements of the Economic Community of West African countries.

The statement was made by the leader of the junta a few hours after the Tuareg proclaimed the independence of their historic homeland, the Azavad region in northern Mali.
