Guinea-Bissau holds first election since coup

Thirteen politicians in the running for the top job of president in first elections since military coup in 2012.

    Voters in Guinea-Bissau are preparing to go to the polls on Sunday to elect a new president.

    The election comes two years after a military coup forced the postponement of a presidential runoff vote.

    Close to 800,00 registered voters will determine the fate of the country’s thirteen presidential candidates.
