West Africa bloc Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has lifted post-coup sanctions against Mali.

The 15-nation-member of ECOWAS slapped sanctions on Mali after the August 18 military coup, which toppled president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.

The sanctions “will be lifted when a civilian prime minister is named,” ECOWAS Commission President Jean-Claude Kassi Brou had earlier stated.
Mali’s junta on Thursday (last week) removed a major obstacle to the lifting of ECOWAS sanctions.
It took out a major prerogative devolved to their transition leader who is supposed to bring civilians back to power in the country.
