BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — Mali's new president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita has been sworn into office.
Nouhoum Tapily, the head of Mali's supreme court, officially declared Keita president on Wednesday following a swearing-in ceremony.
An inauguration celebration featuring other world leaders is scheduled for later in the month.
Keita emerged as the winner of Mali's first presidential election since a 2011 coup overthrew the West African's country's longtime leader.
The coup ushered in a year of chaos in which radical jihadists overtook the northern half of Mali and were later ousted by a French-led military intervention.
After forming his government, Keita has just two months until talks are due to resume with a northern rebel group known as the National Movement for the Liberation of the Azawad.
