BAMAKO - Mali's interim president Dioncounda Traore approved a new transitional government on Monday, to move the West African country closer to constitutional order after a military coup in March.

The 31-member government will replace a transitional authority that was crippled by political infighting, and failed make progress in setting elections.

"The president of the republic, after receiving proposals from the prime minister, decrees the list of members of government," said a presidential statement read over state radio.
