Mali Awaits Outcome of Second-Round Ballot

The people of Mali are waiting for results from the presidential election run-off they hope will unlock aid, development and entrench the current peaceful atmosphere. Ballot counting started after the polls closed on Sunday at 1800 GMT across the country.

About 6.8million electorates braved the rains on Sunday to choose between former premier Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and ex-finance minister Soumaila Cisse after none of the 27 candidates who contested the first round of elections on July 28 attained 50%+1 majority.

The voting was peaceful apart from heavy rains in the south of the country, especially in the capital, Bamako and a network of some 2,000 independent observers said in statement that the poll was conducted in a satisfactory condition but noted that some polling stations did not open on time.

Final results are expected to be announced by Friday and Keita is a clear favourite having won 39.8 percent of the vote to Cisse's 19.7 percent in the first round.
