Mali election: unofficial polls announce IBK "with a fairly commanding lead"
Unofficial polls have been issued over the course of the night, indicating a fairly commanding lead for Ibrahim Boubacar Keita in the Malian presidential election. According Thomas Martinez, IBK leads with a ratio of 3 to 1 across country, except for some places, peculiarly in the Niger river delta. This result does not please all contestants, as Soumaïla Cissé's campaign issued statements alleging fraud.
