Coming from the ADEMA-PASJ political melting pot, the two men lead their respective political party, Soumaïla for the URD and SBM for the ASMA-CFP, as decided by fate. But both are tormented by Koulouba’s chair. It must be occupied at all costs.
At a time when the average Malian is looking for something to ruminate under a political transition full of uncertainties, the president of the URD and that of the ASMA embarked on a duel at a distance, which does not say his name. If the second welcomes the release of the first, both are aware that gift, there will be none on the political field.

The wildest speculations predicted an alliance between the URD and the ASMA-CFP for 2023. Unfortunately, the coup d’état against President Keita’s regime has changed the situation. The presidential elections will take place sooner than expected, if the roadmap of the transition led by Bah N’Daw is respected.
By 2022, there will certainly be a political reconfiguration. Already, the PARENA of Tiébilé and the CODEM of Housseini
