Video--Haitians go to the polls to pick new president.



In Haiti people are voting in the final round of the presidential election.

The chaotic first round was marred by fraud allegations and unrest

The UN is helping to protect the 11 000 polling stations. There have been delays because some voters are turning up without the right papers enabling them to vote.

The candidate who won the last round is former First Lady, Mirlande Maniget. At the age of 70, the university-educated law professor is hoping to become the country's first female president.
