The presidential election held in Guinea-Bissau is set for a second round between main contenders Malam Bacai Sanha of the ruling party and former president Kumba Yala.
The first round was held in a much orderly way and no or few reports of irregularities was reported by observers. This will most likely define Guinea-Bissau as a functioning democratic state. The second round is to be held 2 August
Once the president is installed shortly after the second round in august, the political situation will be normalised and the current interim status will be changed to a constitutional Semi-Presidential form.
