ECOWAS STATEMENTS ON THE SITUATION IN COTE D'IVOIRE

ECOWAS invites stakeholders, particularly institutions involved and members of
the CEI to work together to seek consensual solutions to the various problems
posed. ECOWAS enjoins them to graciously provide necessary information that
would facilitate and accelerate the process of compilation, cross-checking and
consolidation leading to a consensual publication of provisional results
within the shortest time possible, using the adopted operational system.
ECOWAS congratulates the CEI on its efforts and encourages it to complete its
electoral work in line with the constitutional provisions to enable it declare
the results of the election in a prompt and transparent manner.

ECOWAS appeals to the two candidates to put the interest of the country over
all other personal considerations. It invites them to accept and respect the
provisional consensual results which will be announced by the CEI and urges
them to seek only legal option to resolve any complaint and electoral
controversy.

ECOWAS invites all Ivoirians, who have exhibited their political and
democratic maturity by voting en masse in the first round to be patient, calm
and sustain national unity and cohesion to ensure that Côte d’Ivoire comes out
completely from this crisis and resumes its special role in the development of
our region.
