Malians Vote in Runoff Round of Presidential Election, IBK Favorite to Win

BAMAKO Malians headed to the polls on Sunday to vote in the second round of the presidential election between the incumbent president and the leader of the opposition.

Images released by epa showed President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, known popularly as IBK, casting his ballot in a vote he is considered favorite to win.

In the first round held on July 29, he obtained 41.7 percent of the vote, while his main opponent Soumaila Cisse got 17.7 percent.

Many of the 22 candidates who ran the first round announced they would support IBK, while others opted not to back either candidate in the runoff.

During his final rally in the days leading up to the election, Cisse denounced alleged irregularities in the first round and highlighted the severe ethnic and terrorist threats his country faces.
