Mali President IBK confident of winning presidential runoff

Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita held a final rally in Mali’s capital city of Bamako ahead of Sunday’s run off against opposition leader Soumaila Cisse. He defied claims by the opposition that he would fail to win the second round. Keita won 41 percent of the votes in the first round against arch rival Cisse who collected just under 18 percent. Cisse has alleged there was widespread fraud in the first round and has been trying to unite the other two dozen candidates behind him for the run-off. Keita’s camp denies there was fraud and the constitutional court on Wednesday upheld the results, despite challenges by Cisse, third-place finisher Aliou Diallo and fourth-placed Cheick Modibo Diarra.
