Mali’s constitutional court has confirmed Ibrahim Boubacar Keita as the country’s new president, following a landslide victory.

The 68-year-old won 77.62% of the vote in the second round of elections on August 11.

Keita is a former prime minister and veteran of the political scene in Mali. He takes office on September 4 and will be faced with the task of leading the country out of a 17-month political crisis sparked by a military coup.

US president Obama has issued a statement congratulating the people of Mali and the new president on successful elections.
