On Sunday people in Benin are voting for their new president.

And the ballot papers are going to have to be long – as there are 33 candidates seeking to take over from President Thomas Yayi Boni.

And today is their last chance to appeal to voters as campaigning wraps up.

Here are a few pictures of supporters of some of the candidates:
