While attending the next general elections, political parties in Mauritania have agreed to form a transitional government ending the military regime installed last year.
The elections will be held in Mauritania on the 18 of July 2009 and, eventually, on the 2 of August.
As reported by Senegalese newspaper Lesoleil.sn, “a transitional government will govern the country until the elections. This must take the form of a “consultative transition”.
The agreement has been hailed as the beginning of a new democracy on Mauritania.
It is hoped that the democratic process which first began in 2006 will be continued in July and will this time prove more success, the Senegalese newspaper reports.
