Mali: presidential elections in Mali

Sociolingo's Mali blogs about today's presidential elections in Mali: “So far all is quiet here in Bamako on polling day. There seems to be a little apathy in the city – only 31% have been reported as picking up their voting cards despite being given the day off on the 25th to do so. Nationally a figure of 64% is being reported. The expectation is that the polling will go off quietly, but that we may see some problems occurring next week if ATT gets back in and the opposition parties try and force him to make new agreements. We shall see. I’ll update this post as and when we get more news.”
