Democracy and Unity forum set up to promote solidarity

Nouakchott, Mauritania - Dozens of political parties, civil society organisations, unions and personalities have set up a Forum for Democracy and Unity (FDU) in Mauritania.

The forum will be officially launched during a programme scheduled from 28 February to 2 March in Nouakchott.

The forum aims, among other things, to harmonize the points of view of all political forces and promote solidarity,' Sarr Mamadou, the President of the Forum for Human Rights National Organisations (FONADH), told PANA.

Just months before the presidential elections scheduled for June, the FDU is calling for a 'transparent, calm, open and credible' poll, whose results would be accepted by all.
