Image result for Mali: Run-off expected as Keita fails to secure adequate votesMali’s presidential election will go to a run-off poll after President Ibrahim Keita failed to get enough votes to outrightly win a second term in office.

Keita won 41.1 percent of the vote while rival Soumaila Cisse won 17.8 percent.

With neither candidate obtaining the 50% required to win outright, the two will meet in a run-off later this month.

The results were announced four days after an election marred by accusations of fraud and attacks by suspected militants, prevented thousands from voting.
