Election observers from the European Union(EU) and African Union(AU) have so far given the elections a clean bill of health.The two major observer groups have termed the elections as free and fair.The  round  one  fraud allegations of close to 400,000 spoilt ballots made by Mr. Cisse were dispelled as untrue.The elections have created a new face for the West African Nation following a coup will toppled the government in 2012.  Mr.Keita and Cisse are among the 27 candidates who contested for the top office. In round two,Mr.Ibrahim Keita enjoyed the support of the other candidates who lost in round one. In the July,28 elections,Mr.Keita had garnered  39% of the vote cast against Cisse’s 20% and this meant a re-run to meet the minimum thresh-hold.

Mr.Keita,68  clinching the top office in the  just concluded  elections comes  in handy with the foreign aid pledge of $ 4 billion from the European Community.The funds will be used to re-build the nation
