An alliance of groups led by an influential Malian political group have called for the country’s constitutional referendum to be abandoned until the government has driven and crushed terrorists in areas dominated by jihadists and former rebels. The vote on Mali’s national charter was due on July ninth but was postponed in the face of internal opposition in government and following protests by thousands of Malians who believe the vote cannot be held democratically. The “don’t touch my constitution” group say the referendum should be retracted and a national consultation held to rewrite it.
