Voters in the Maldives are set to go to the polls to elect a president after two previous rounds failed.

 

Candidates came to a last-minute agreement earlier this week to sign the voter lists required for the election to take place.

 

It is the first vote in the Indian Ocean archipelago since ex-President Mohamed Nasheed was forced from office in 2012, sparking a political crisis.

 

Tensions are high after one vote was annulled and a re-run halted by police.
