The Alliance for Democracy in Mali (Adema) is holding its 6th congress next Sunday, after that of the Youth and Women’s Movement, held last weekend.
This congress is organized in a particular situation taking into account the situation of the country. For this, several contenders for the presidency of the party want to register their candidacies in this context.
This is the case with the candidacy of the secretary general of the Adema / Pasj section of Sikasso, Adama Noupounon Diarra, who wants to break with the old system installed within the party party by minority of individuals. Today he is among the reformers of Africa’s second largest political party after the South African ANC. The secretary general of the Sikasso section could hope for support both from his section and from the youth and women’s movement, and even from other sections inside and outside. This is because of his personal commitment to the development of the party. Adama N Diarra can also benefit from the blessing of several sections of the district of Bamako and the diaspora.
Until then, he is the candidate who has officially written to all sections and the executive office to declare his candidacy. A first in party history that a candidate writes to all sections to declare his candidacy.
Adama N Diarra’s candidacy is supported by almost all sections of the former Sikasso region in general, and particularly the Sikasso section. The secretary general and the first party official in the capital of Kénédoudougou, Adama N. Diarra is today among the party’s cadres who advocate change and a total break with the old system.
The former national director of the AN Diarra solidarity fund is not dragging anything behind him, unlike the outgoing president, Tiemoko Sangaré who is said to be in trouble with the Economic and Financial Pole, even if his supporters speak of an alleged “whitewashed”.
For the secretary general of the Adema section of Sikasso, it is time to make the party a party of militants, to start with a new impetus of political activism and above all that the voice of the base be a compass for the leaders.
It should be noted that Adama N diarra is a bee activist from the very beginning. He is the mayor of the rural commune of Kourouma in the circle of Sikasso. This native of the village of Foh is the son of one of the first cadres of the region of Sikasso, the late El hadj Noupounon Diarra.
Today, Adama N Diarra’s candidacy is seen as a reward for his commitment to the party and to the populations of Sikasso and other localities who recognize him as a true leader.
