Since time immemorial, North Africa has been a land of rebellion and resistance against foreign invaders and illegitimate rulers. Today’s armed extremism is more complex, with its indiscriminate targeting and ever-expanding effects. Widespread international connections, effective use of communication technologies and a vast reservoir for recruitment, have made the Maghreb radical movements a lethal and durable threat not only to North Africa itself, but increasingly to the weak states of the Sahel and the wider Mediterranean region.

On April 7, 2015, Burkina Faso provisional National Transition Council (NTC) passed a new law amending the Electoral Code. This is just a forty-five words text that could prevent former leaders of the Blaise Compaore regime from being candidates to the forthcoming presidential and parliamentary elections to be held next October.  The barons of the 27-year long reign are now leaving no stone unturned in order to avoid such a political sanction which to them means a premature retirement and even political exclusion.

By making the fight against Boko Haram his main priority, the new President of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, brings good news to the sub-region especially as he is well known for his strictness.

In Mali, the forthcoming signature of a peace agreement between the government and the coordination of Azawad’s movements will contribute to better organize the fight against terrorists’ networks.

Colonel Jean-Baptiste Natama, Director of the Cabinet of the Chair of the African Commissionin Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, was the first to declare himself as candidate for the October 2015 elections.  Then, DjibrilBassole, the only general of the Burkina gendarmerie, and former minister of Foreign affairs announced that he will be a candidate. After that, Colonel YacoubaOuedraogo, former minister of Sports came out and did the same.  Prior to all of them, a former Corporal of the Presidential Security Regiment (PSR), Roland Tonde, had clearly expressed his ambitions for national leadership. Lastly, it seems that the political party (Congress for Democracy and Progress) that was pushed out of power by the October 2014 mass insurrection had threatened to nominate General Gilbert Diendere, Commander-in-chief of PSR and close associate to the former Burkina Faso head of state, BlaiseCompaore.
