Egypt presidential election candidates in first TV debate

Help

Egypt has held its first-ever live debate between presidential candidates.

It featured the two expected front-runners in the presidential vote later this month - former Arab League head Amr Moussa and moderate Islamist Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh.

The first round of voting is on 23-24 May. If no-one has an absolute majority a run-off will be held in June.

It is hoped that this will be Egypt's first free and fair election for the presidency.
