Mali People

Yearbook 2004

Mali. According to CountryAAH, the total population in Mali is 20,250,844 people in 2020. Prime Minister Ahmad Ag Hamani resigned at the end of April without further explanation after a year and a half on the post. He was succeeded by the party-less Transport Minister Ousmane Issoufi Maïga, a Soviet-trained economist, who had previously been, among other things. finance minister and sports minister.

In May, Mali’s first local elections were held with the participation of all parties – more than 90. Although Mali internationally has a good democratic reputation, voter interest is weak. The current President Amadou Touré runs a consensus policy with a broad co-government without any real opposition.

The United States sent military instructors to northeastern Mali to train the army in counter-terrorism. Mali also got off-road vehicles and other desert war equipment from the United States, which fears that the country will be infiltrated by Islamic fundamentalists from North Africa. Northeastern Mali is an unstable area of ​​ethnic contradictions, which occasionally leads to armed conflicts, but straw robbery and other crime also pose a problem.

During the year, Mali, as well as large parts of northwestern Africa, were subjected to unusually large grasshopper attacks. About 700,000 hectares were estimated to have been hit, but the authorities thought they had saved the most fertile areas south of the 14th latitude by establishing a chemical control barrier. Nevertheless, 15–25% of the expected harvest was estimated to have been destroyed.
