Mali Ready for First Round of Presidential Election, EU Says

Mali is ready for the first round of its presidential election and its winner will have an “unquestionable legitimacy,” the head of the European Union’s observation mission said.

Mali’s 6.9 million eligible voters go to the polls tomorrow to elect a president after an ethnic Touareg uprising in the north prompted under-equipped soldiers to overthrow the government more than a year ago.
