Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic

Paris, August 15, 2013

The President welcomes the official announcement of Mali’s presidential election results. The large turnout is proof of the Malian electorate’s commitment to the re-establishment of democracy.

The scale of Ibrahim Boubacar Keita’s victory is such as to give him all the necessary legitimacy to undertake the effort to get the nation back on its feet and ensure its development.

As the President said to Mr Keita on the telephone after the poll, France will stand alongside the democratic Mali./.
