Votes are being counted in Mali, following a referendum on a new constitution that maps out the process of returning the country to democratic civilian rule.

The military leaders who seized power in 2021 have said they will hand over to an elected government next year.

The revised constitution includes a new second parliamentary chamber to increase representation across Mali.

Critics say it will leave the president with too much power – and that the military should not have a role in the redrafting of the constitution.

Provisional results will be available on Tuesday.
