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:...

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.
