Loser in Mali election files appeal to overturn results
Cisse lost in a ["]landslide["] to incumbent President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, picking up just 33 percent of the vote in an election in which only 34 percent of a politics-weary [?] electorate voted.
Blow for Cisse as opposition leaders decline runoff support, 9 Aug
"Neither IBK (Keita) nor Soumi (Cisse) corresponds with our political ideal. I will not support one or the other. Each person who voted for me is free to vote for whom they wish," Diarra, who won seven percent in the first round, told supporters in the capital, Bamako.

Diallo told his followers that it was "to Malians that I leave the responsibility of expressing themselves as they wish in the second round."

Opposition groups call for demonstration in Bamako on August 18 to protest
