THE ECOWAS mediation mission led by Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan today, Sunday in Bamako unveiled its recommendations seeking to end the crisis in Mali.
The proposals  included the setting up of a Transitional Government and recomposition of the Constitutional Court before 31st July.
But the opposition Coalition M5-RFP has rejected both proposals, insisting on the dissolution of the Parliament and the resignation of embattled President Ibrahim Keita, official sources said.
The ECOWAS mission recommends that the national unity government be made up of 50%, 30% and 20% representatives of the ruling party, opppsition and civil society, respectively.
Of the six-member Constitutional Court, the ECOWAS mission recommends that three should be appointed by the President of the Republic and the other three by the National Judicial Council.
Former president Jonathan told a press conference in Bamako that his mission “could not find a common ground” with the opposition. This means in effect that the tension and uncertainty remain.
