Egypt's presidential poll: The revolution, Part II
Fifteen months after Hosni Mubarak's fall, the second act of Egypt's revolution is underway. Millions of Egyptians are choosing a president in the first free elections in the country's 5,000-year history. Douglas Herbert and his panel discuss whether the newly elected president will have a chance of healing divisions while tackling poverty and fighting violent crime.
