Cote D'Ivoire prepares for vote

African nation to hold first presidential poll since 2002 civil war in two weeks time.


    Cote D'Ivoire in West Africa will be holding its first presidential election since the 2002 civil war in two weeks time.

    The polls have already been postponed several times and this latest vote is seen as vital to the healing process.
