BAMAKO (Reuters) - The opposition party of Mali presidential election candidate Soumaila Cisse said on Monday that the poll would go to a run-off between Cisse and President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, based on a count done by its own party agents.

“We are going to a second round between Soumaila Cisse and Ibrahim Boubacar Keita,” Cisse’s campaign manager Tiebele Drame told a press conference at the party’s headquarters in the capital Bamako.
