Ivory Coast: Low Voter Turnout In First Post-Gbagbo Elections

Ivorians voted Sunday in parliamentary elections overshadowed by a boycott of ousted president Laurent Gbagbo’s party. Turnout was much lower than in last year’s disputed presidential election, whose outcome plunged the country into turmoil.

Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara made a personal call to his countrymen to vote on Sunday as low turnout in parliamentary elections threatened to undermine his efforts to reconcile a deeply divided country.

The vote has been boycotted by the party of deposed former President Laurent Gbagbo – and at noon on Sunday it was evident the turnout was going to be far below the 80% who participated in last November’s disputed presidential election that brought the country to the brink of civil war.
