Gambia Citizens Use Marbles To Vote For President In Unique System

The tiny West African state of Gambia is due to hold presidential elections on Thursday. Three candidates are in the running including current president, Yahya Jammeh. He's seeking a fifth term in office. Although Jammeh is widely expected to win, there's an unprecedented surge in support for the opposition. As it's been done for six decades, voting will take place with marbles. CCTV's Jane Kiyo explains the unique system.
