Assimi Goita, the colonel who recently led the military coup in Mali, will become the African country’s interim vice-president. During an 18-month transition period, he will lead the country with former defense minister and colonel Bah Ndaw. Ndaw becomes interim president.

The temporary leaders will be sworn in on Friday, Goita said Monday. He led the coup on August 18 that ended President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita’s seven-year regime.

The duo has been chosen by seventeen persons who have been assigned by the military coup plotters. The two will lead the country during an 18-month transition period, followed by national elections. These agreements were made more than a week ago with political and social groups.

The military administration was put under pressure after the state group by the leaders of the ECOWAS, a partnership of West African countries. They demanded that the junta give way to a civilian government. It is not clear whether they are satisfied with the choice of Ndaw and Goita.

Last week, ECOWAS threatened to impose new economic sanctions on Mali because of the state group. Mali’s leaders and a number of partners, including France and the United States, fear, among other things, that the coup will undermine the fight against Islamic militants in the region.
