Assimi Goita, the former coup leader of Mali, seized power again on Tuesday and fired the president and prime minister of the transitional government after they announced a cabinet reorganization without his permission. Newsweek reports that despite Goita’s promises to honor new elections in 2022, the repossession of the government signals that the vote may not proceed without significant interference by the junta that overthrew the last democratically elected president. Goita’s actions have also sparked fears that the new unrest could further destabilize efforts to control the West African country’s Islamic insurgency.
