Mali

Mali was scheduled to hold a presidential election this year, but in April, weeks before the national poll, rebel soldiers overthrew the government, promising elections that have yet to take place. Shortly thereafter, rebels handed power over to interim leader Dioncounda Traoré, who is now working to broker peace between the government and al-Qaeda-linked rebels who have invaded Mali’s north.
