Côte d’Ivoire: Political dialogue resumes today

The political dialogue will restart this Thursday, December 16, in Côte d’Ivoire with a meeting between the government and the main political parties. This is the third in less than three years, with a different Prime Minister each time. The first, initiated by Amadou Gon Coulibaly in early 2019, had lasted six months in a tense pre-election climate. The second, a year ago, under the leadership of Hamed Bakayoko, had helped ease political tensions exacerbated by the 2020 presidential election. This time, Patrick Achi is in charge. And it’s all about preparing for the local elections of 2023.
This Thursday, Prime Minister Patrick Achi, who will lead the first session, will probably begin by setting the framework for this dialogue.
