Timor-Leste applauded for presidential election

Reporters ask election officials questions during a press conference on presidential run-off poll in Timor-Leste.

The people of Timor Leste went to the polls on Monday to elect their president in a second round of voting.

The two candidates are opposition leader Francisco Guterres and Taur Mtan Ruak.

Incumbent President Jose Ramos Horta came in third in the first round of the election last month.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has commended the people of Timor Leste for voting in what he described as "the peaceful and orderly manner."

Derrick Mbatha reports.
