  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.reuters.com/article/us-bissau-election/guinea-bissau-votes-in-presidential-run-off-pitting-two-former-premiers-idUSKBN1YX00V) reduced by 71%. (I’m a bot)

    > BISSAU – Voters in Guinea-Bissau will choose their next president on Sunday in a run-off election pitting two former prime ministers who both promise to bring stability to the turbulent West African nation.

    > The ruling PAIGC party's Domingos Simoes Pereira, 56, is seen as the front-runner after winning the first round on Nov. 24 with 40%. His opponent, Umaro Cissoko Embalo, 47, was in second place with 28% despite being a relative political newcomer, and political analysts say the run-off race could be close.

    > Guinea-Bissau's next president will inherit major challenges including widespread poverty and an unstable political system in which the majority party appoints the government but the president has the power to dismiss it.
