Bleak hopes for change ahead of Mali polls

Many candidates were either in previous governments or at least connected to those administrations.

    Voters in Mali are heading to the polls on Sunday for the first presidential elections since Amadou Toure was toppled in a coup last year. 

    Malians are desperate for an end to corruption and want to see a new kind of leadership. But almost all the main candidates were either in previous governments or at least connected to those administrations.
