BISSAU (Reuters) - Guinea-Bissau's former finance minister, Jose Mario Vaz, will face Nuno Gomes Nabiam in a second round of the country's presidential election after no candidate secured a majority in the April 13 vote, the election commission said.

Vaz secured 40.99 percent of the votes in the first round and Nabiam came second with 25.14 percent, according to election commission figures released on Wednesday.

The second round is due on May 18.
