Sao Tome and Principe

Second round runoff will happen


There was no clear winner in the presidential election which took place yesterday in this small island group off the west coast of Africa. The local media are suggesting that ex president Manuel Pinto da Costa is the front runner, but results will not be known until later today.

A second round runoff will take place on 24th July between the top two polling candidates.
