Malian general elections : a second round to give "real democratic legitimacy"
Melissa Bell analyses the outcomes of the first round of the General elections in Mali.

According to Melissa Bell, it seems to be great news : it allows these elections to gain interest and pressure, and increase the democratic legitimacy of the general elections.
