For this, the government is mostly made up of technocrats and not necessarily led by political figures. Statistics may be” Neutral ”, without political commitment, as well as the diaspora.

The new president may surround himself with members of the President Diomey coalition, which includes a hundred smaller parties and movements. For example, we see former trade unionist Dame Mbotge or former Prime Minister Mimi Touré. The most important thing, we emphasize at Basstep, is the distortion and “ project “Worn Bussiro Duomoye Faye and Ousmane Sonko.
