Mali's opposition rejected the results on Thursday of presidential elections and vowed to use "all democratic means" to contest the outcome.

"These are their results. They do not reflect the truth of the polls," Tiebile Drame, opposition leader Soumaila Cisse's campaign chief, said at the party's headquarters. "We strongly call for people to mobilise."
