The Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), has instructed the President of the Commission to initiate the process of reviewing the 2001 Supplementary Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance in order to ensure democracy, peace, and stability in the sub-region.
The instruction was given in light of recent perennial coup in the region.

concern about its consequences on the deterioration of the security situation in
Mali and the region as a whole.

Level Mission dispatched to the Republic of Guinea on 10 September 2021,
following the Extraordinary Session of the Authority held via videoconference on 8 September 2021.
