Bissau presidential frontrunner calls for peace on eve of vote
By Alberto Dabo BISSAU (Reuters) - The frontrunner in Guinea-Bissau's election ended his campaign by calling for peace as the coup-prone West African country prepared for a Sunday vote meant bring political stability and renew cooperation with donors and investors. Former finance minister Jose Mario Vaz, candidate of the dominant party African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC), secured more than 40 percent of the vote in the first round. In the runoff he faces Nuno Gomes Nabiam, an independent candidate backed by the army and the country's balanta electorate.
