The latest statement was also made in the name of a previously unheard-of entity, the Patriotic Movement for Safeguard and Restoration, or MPSR,.. its French-language acronym.
It said it would propose a calendar for a return to constitutional order, after consultations with various groups in the country.
The latest coup came after shootings erupted at army camps on Sunday, with soldiers demanding more support for their fight against Islamist militants.
