Cote d’Ivoire / UNOCI welcomes the annoucement of an electoral timeline



ABIDJAN, Côte d’Ivoire, April 29, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — UNOCI welcomes the announcement made today 28 April 2009 before the UN Security Council in New York by the Permanent Representative of Cote d’Ivoire that the first round of the presidential election in Cote d’Ivoire will take place during the period 11 October – 6 December 2009.


UNOCI hopes that this positive development will give a fresh momentum to the peace process and will entice all the parties concerned to redouble their efforts in order to agree on a new election date. At the same time, mindful of the challenges posed by the fourth supplementary agreement UNOCI encourages all OPA protagonists to make tangible progress towards the reunification process.


UNOCI would like to reiterate its commitment to support the Ivorian parties in their efforts to move the peace process forward, including with regard to reunification and elections.
