Mali to hold presidential elections on Sunday

Mali is scheduled for a first round of presidential elections Sunday.They’d be the first since a military coup in early 2012.

Adrian Edwards, a spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said the United Nations was coordinating with Mali’s neighbors so displaced refugees can take part in the voting process. He said at least 173,000 Malians left the country when the political crisis erupted in January 2012.

He said displaced Malians, in general, viewed the election process favorably.
