Mali's presidential election will go to a run-off vote after President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita failed to get enough votes to win a second term in office outright, the Ministry of Territorial Administration said in a statement on Thursday.

Keita won 41 percent of the vote while rival Soumaila Cisse won 17.8 percent, it said. They will meet in a runoff vote later this month.
