Politics and Society Mali elections set for run-off amidst violence and insecurity

The 2018 Mali election is set to go into a run-off after the main opposition candidate, Soumaila Cisse, stated that the “incumbent president can’t win in the first round”. The voting process has been marred by armed attacks and other forms of violence, which halted voting in three percent of the country’s polling stations, the government has said.
