Mali : la junte militaire au pouvoir pendant 5 ans  Il s’agit là de l’une des clauses principales du plan quinquennal de transition démocratique approuvé par le Parlement malien.  Lundi les législateurs ont ainsi permis aux militaires de garder le pouvoir malgré les sanctions régionales que cette proposition avait imposés au Mali.  120 membres du Parlement intérimaire sur 121 sièges, ont voté pour. "L'ordre du jour de cette session extraordinaire à porter exclusivement sur l'examen du projet de loi portant révision de la charte de la transition que nous venons d'adopter à la quasi-unanimité des membres du Conseil National de la Transition." a déclaré Malick Diaw, président du CNT.  Après avoir organisé un coup d'État en août 2020, les nouveaux dirigeants du Mali avaient initialement promis d'organiser un scrutin en février 2022. Mais lorsque le gouvernement a proposé de rester au pouvoir entre six mois et cinq ans en décembre dernier, les tensions se sont accentuées avec la CEDEAO mais aussi avec la France.  Le vote de ce projet de loi intervient alors que le gouvernement français a officiellement annoncé le retrait de ses troupes, déployées au Mali depuis plus de sept ans.  "C'est un sentiment de joie et de fierté lorsque les forces d'occupation quittent votre territoire. On ne peut que se réjouir et féliciter le courage patriotique des autorités, notamment le président patriote, le libérateur Assimi Goïta. Lorsque les forces Barkhane se retirent, c'est le début de la fin de la guerre au Mali et lorsque les forces d'occupation quittent le Mali, c'est le début de la fin de la guerre au Mali." a expliquéBen Diarra, membre du CNT.  Aucun législateur de l'assemblée législative dominée par l'armée n'a voté contre le projet de loi ou s'est abstenu.  Le projet de loi ne mentionne pas la date à laquelle une future élection pourrait être organisée.      Mali: the military junta in power for 5 years  This is one of the main clauses of the five-year democratic transition plan approved by the Malian Parliament.  On Monday, lawmakers thus allowed the military to retain power despite the regional sanctions that this proposal had imposed on Mali.  120 members of the interim parliament out of 121 seats voted in favour. "The agenda of this extraordinary session to focus exclusively on the examination of the bill revising the transition charter that we have just adopted almost unanimously by the members of the National Council of the Transition." declared Malick Diaw, president of the CNT.  After staging a coup in August 2020, Mali's new leaders initially promised to hold a poll in February 2022. But when the government offered to stay in power between six months and five years last December, the tensions have increased with ECOWAS but also with France.  The vote on this bill comes as the French government has officially announced the withdrawal of its troops, deployed in Mali for more than seven years.  "It is a feeling of joy and pride when the occupying forces leave your territory. We can only rejoice and congratulate the patriotic courage of the authorities, in particular the patriotic president, the liberator Assimi Goïta. When the Barkhane forces withdraw, it is the beginning of the end of the war in Mali and when the occupying forces leave Mali, it is the beginning of the end of the war in Mali." explained Ben Diarra, member of the CNT.

Le Mouvement du 20 février doit continuer à libérer notre pays de l'injustice et de la tyrannie. Nous devons nous battre pour la dignité et la justice sociale" explique un manifestant.  Le gouvernement a réagi expliquant qu'à hausse des prix de certains biens de consommation" s'expliquait principalement par la reprise économique inattendue dans le monde et l'augmentation continue des prix des céréales et des produits pétroliers sur le marché international. L'Etat devrait allouer plus de 350 millions de dollars jusqu'à fin 2022 pour la subvention du prix de la farine, selon Fouzi Lekjaa, le ministre délégué auprès du ministre de l'Economie, chargé du budget.  Dimanche, des accrochages ont eu lieu sur un marché rural près de la ville de Kénitra (nord) à la suite notamment de "spéculations inhabituelles au niveau de prix de certains produits de consommation", ont indiqué les autorités locales, selon l'agence de presse MAP.
