 Making peace: signed in Sant'Egidio the agreement for a transition covenant among the main institutional and political forces of Niger
Rome, October 15, 2010

After a week of meetings and work, the military junta of Niger (CSRD), the government, the parliament of transition (CCN), the major political forces and civil society signed in Rome at the headquarters of the Community of Sant'Egidio, a national pact which paves the way for a peaceful transition toward institutions elected by the people.



The Niger, a country that in Africa has been a hub of interesting democratic progresses in the 90's, has long been in political instability. Country with precious resources such as uranium, it has become one of the hinges of stability and instability of Sahelian Africa and an international crossroad for the decisive struggle against terrorism, pivot of a  geopolitical area sensitive to the battle being waged between the forces of stability and of law, international traffics, recruitment and training of terrorist forces operating internationally.

 

To facilitate the process of democratic transition, the Community of Sant'Egidio has invited and gathered for a week in Rome the institutional, political and social forces of Niger, which have agreed the signing of a joint appeal.
