Constitutional court declares Keita winner of Mali Presidential election


Mali’s highest court, the Constitutional court, has confirmed the presidential re-election victory of President Ibrahim Boubar Keita.

The court which made the declaration on Monday in a run-off ballot, also rejected allegations of fraud leveled by the country opposition candidate, Sounmaila Cisse.

The European Union observer mission and other local and international monitors which collaborated the claims of a number of irregularities and disruptions, however, said they saw no evidence of fraud.

Following the court’s decision, Keita is poised to be inaugurated next month for a second five-year term, amidst rising violence by jihadist groups and ethnic militia.

The August 12 election was reportedly marred by armed attacks in the center and north, where hundreds of polling stations remained closed, with a paltry turnout of 34 per cent an indication of fears of violence as well as voter apathy.

Cisse had challenged the electoral commission result which gave Keita 67 per cent votes.

He averred that he would have won 51 percent of the vote but for ballot box stuffing and other cheating by Keita’s camp an allegation Keita rejected.
