Niger became independent from France in 1960 A.D. and experienced single-party and military rule until 1991 A.D., when Gen. Ali Saibou was forced by public pressure to allow multiparty elections, which resulted in a democratic government in 1993 A.D.. Political infighting brought the government to a standstill and in 1996 A.D. led to a coup by Col. Ibrahim Bare. In 1999 A.D. Bare was removed in a coup by military officers who promptly restored democratic rule and held elections that brought Mamadou Tandja to power in December of that year. Tandja was reelected in 2004 A.D.. French is the official language; Hausa and Djerma are also spoken.
