Finalists in Mali Elections in Final Campaign Push Before Sunday's Election

Two political heavyweights in Mali are making a final push to woo voters, ahead of Sunday's presidential run-off.

Former Prime Minister Ibrahim Boubacar Keita is facing former finance minister Soumaila Cisse in an election that could mark a turning point for Mali, following an 18-month political crisis.

Friday is the candidates' only real day of campaigning because of delays in confirming results from the first round of polling on July 28 and the Muslim holiday, Eid. Both men are expected to spend the day visiting voters across Mali.
