Mohammed Jamil Ould Mansour, a candidate of the ruling National Rally for Reform and Development, or Tawasol, for the Mauritanian presidential elections, has called for national unity among the Mauritanian nation. Mauritania is currently in urgent need of instilling in its citizens messages of love, tolerance and the long forgotten value of sincerity and national harmony. "There is no need to dredge up the issue of ethnic or race," he said.
Ould Mansour, with regard to the prospects of contesting the second round of the elections and the possibility of not winning the first round, argued that he was nominated to contest the second round. "If something else happens, the party at all levels is attempting to assemble and consider the interests of the country, the religion and the people in order to make a decisions without conditions,” added Ould Mansour.
