It's election day in Guinea-Bissau. Voters will take part in presidential and parliamentary polls, for the the first time since the 2012 coup. Thirteen politicians are running for the country's top job, while 15 parties are fielding candidates for the parliament. Polling will be monitored by hundreds of international observers. A presidential runoff is scheduled for May 18 if no candidate emerges as the clear winner. It's the first election since a coup in 2012, after which the EU and others suspended aid donations to the poor country. With a history of coups, no elected leader has served a full term since independence from Portugal in 1974. The impoverished West African nation is plagued by an ailing economy, cocaine trafficking, and widespread corruption.

Ahead of the June 2009 elections, Guinea-Bissau, the smallest country in Africa, still faces massive lawlessness, even despite the presence of a European Union mission that seeks to help the country restore its legal and justice system.
Guinea-Bissau's presidential frontrunner sought to dispel fears of potential meddling by the chronically unstable nation's army as voters cast their ballots on Sunday in a high-stakes run-off election meant to draw a line under a 2012 military coup. Former finance minister Jose Mario Vaz, the candidate of the dominant African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde, secured more than 40 percent of the vote in the first round and is considered the strong favorite for victory. He faces Nuno Gomes Nabiam, the former chair of Bissau's civil aviation agency, who won around 25 percent of the first round vote, comes from the Balanta ethnic group - the country's largest - and is seen as close to the army. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/dP_hMhxD3qk/story01.htm http:...
http://www.euronews.net/ The government of Guinea-Bissau has confirmed its troops have foiled a new coup attempt from within the military. Reports say, during the attack, Prime minister Carlos Gomes Junior took refuge at a foreign embassy. The head of the country's navy has been detained, accused of being the coup's ringleader. The former Portuguese colony has struggled with successive coups and military mutinies since independence in the 1970s.

Guinea-Bissau holds legislative and presidential elections on Sunday which are hoped will bring stability to the country two years after a coup.
On 12 April 2012 a military uprising ousted former prime minister Carlos Gomes Júnior just as he was about to compete in a run-off presidential election that he was poised to win. Gabriela Keseberg Dávalos, Senior Communications Officer for the International Crisis Group, and Vincent Foucher, Crisis Group West Africa Senior Analyst, were in Bissau to examine the current situation in the country, the reasons for the overthrow and the priorities of the new transitional government.
