Counting is under way in Benin's presidential election.
Incumbent President Patrice Talon is being challenged by two candidates, but voter turnout is low.
And even though the president is predicted to win a second term, nobody expected him to be on the ballot.
Few expect this vote to go into a second round, which means President Talon will likely secure a second five-year mandate that could strengthen his grip on power.

Al Jazeera’s Ahmed Idris reports from Benin’s largest city, Cotonou.
