ABIDJAN, Côte d’Ivoire, April 30, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Daily press briefing by the offices of the spokesperson for the UN secretary-general and the spokesperson for the general assembly president:

 

 

The UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (ONUCI) is welcoming the announcement by the Permanent Representative of Côte d’Ivoire that the first round of the presidential election in the country will take place between 11 October and 6 December 2009.  That announcement was made yesterday at the UN Security Council’s meeting.

 

The Mission is hoping that this positive development will give fresh momentum to the peace process and will entice all the parties concerned to agree on a new election date.  At the same time, the Mission encourages the protagonists of the Ouagadougou Political Agreement to make tangible progress towards the reunification process.  And we have a press release on this upstairs.
