Concern over Cote D’Ivoire as Ouattara wins again


By John Eche


There is concern over the future of politics in Cote D’Ivoire’s following reports that the ruling party has won about 58% of seats in the just concluded parliamentary elections.


While the outcome strengthens President Alassane Ouattara’s hand to continue to govern the country despite very heated and controversial presidential elections last year, the worry now is whether the President would be able to focus on the critical task of mobilising greater gain for the national economy and the people of the nation, while downplaying the expected political demands from his cronies to allow the opposition any meaningful elbow room and continue to perpetuate himself in office endlessly.


The principal opposition parties are being led by by two of his predecessors, Henri Konan Bedie and Laurent Gbagbo.


According to the declared polls outcome, Ouattara’s Rally of Houphouëtists for Democracy and Peace (RHDP) party took a total of 147 of the 255 seats that were contested.


Until recently, Cote D’Ivoire was the fastest growing economy in the world.
