NARCO CLOSEHOLD: Mauritania Unrest

Wednesday, June 26, 2019


By Geoff D. Porter

Following Mauritania’s 22 June presidential election and Mohamed Ould Ghazouani’s 23 June victory speech, Nouakchott and other cities have witnessed sporadic unrest, with opposition groups rejecting the election results. There is allegedly a large opposition demonstration planned for 27 June in Nouakchott and there will likely be clashes between demonstrators and security services. Nevertheless, there do not appear to be any indications that security services will be overwhelmed and while there may be some violence, order will ultimately be restored and President-elect Ould Ghazouani will be sworn in.
