Over 50 per cent of Malians went to the polls on the first round of their country's presidential elections, that's according to Aurelien Agbenonci, the special representative of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) in Mali.

He says this means that the Malians want to make the right choice and change their situation. He commends the people of Mali for this achievement.

Mr. Agbenonci spoke to UN Radio's Beng Poblete-Enriquez about the election process and the current situation.
