Algeria has suggested a six-month “Reasonable Media Period” to restore constitutional and democratic order in Niger, a landlocked country in West Africa.
Algeria has made a political proposal, led by a consensual civil team, to ensure a return to constitutional order in the proposed period, in a public document described by President Abdelmajid Tebboune as an attempt to resolve the Niger crisis.
In a statement to the Ghana News Agency on Wednesday, he suggested that a political solution to the Niger crisis is possible and that adequate guarantees be given to all relevant parties to ensure the sustainability of this solution.
“Algeria’s initiative aims to ensure that all possible political solutions are envisioned with the support of the Niger people. An inclusive approach for the peaceful return of constitutional order in Niger, with the support of the Niger people,” he said.
The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is considering a military operation to reinstate former elected-president Mohamed Bazoum, if negotiations ongoing with coup leaders fail.
Algeria says proposed political solution will provide amnesty and prosecution to President Bozoum and his family.
Algeria has announced that they will work to organize an international conference on the development of the Sahel Region, with the aim of promoting a development-based approach to the multidimensional challenges faced by countries in that region.
“Algeria plans to work, under the auspices of the United Nations, to organize an international conference focused on financing development in the Sahel through the mobilization of funds specifically allocated for this purpose.” is announced by the government of Algeria.
