Guinea-Bissau is preparing to go to the polls on Sunday  for what have been described by a senior UN official as the West African country's "most important" elections.

The presidential and parliamentary polls, which have been postponed several times, are seen as a crucial step on the path to restoring constitutional order in Guinea-Bissau as it recovers from an April 2012 coup.

José Ramos-Horta is the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in Guinea-Bissau.

Monica Grayley asked him what the mood was like ahead of the election.
