The French President welcomes the good progress of the Malian presidential election, which enjoyed a high turnout and a lack of major incidents, according to initial observations by the European Union mission.

The election confirms Mali’s return to the constitutional order, following the victory achieved over the terrorists and the liberation of the country.

The unprecedented turnout observed in Mali yesterday testifies to the Malians’ commitment to democratic values. It is an opportunity and a symbol./.
