Ivory Coast opposition says Gbagbo no longer president

By on February 15, 2010

Ivory Coast’s opposition groups said they no longer recognised Laurent Gbagbo as president of the country on Saturday, after Gbagbo dissolved the government and electoral commission.

Gbagbo announced on Friday night that he had dissolved the government and commission because of a row over the electoral registration process.

“In consequence of this announcement, the (opposition coalition) RHDP proclaims that we no longer recognise Mr Laurent Gbagbo as the head of state of Ivory Coast,” said a statement read out by opposition leader Alphonse Djedje Mady.

“We call on the security forces to conform scrupulously with their republican mission.”
