Côte d’Ivoire / UNOCI chief and RDR chairman discuss electoral process



ABIDJAN, Côte d’Ivoire, March 12, 2010/African Press Organization (APO)/ — The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Côte d’Ivoire, Y. J. Choi, continuing his consultations with the Ivorian political actors, met on Thursday, in Abidjan, with the Chairman of the Rally of Republicans (RDR), Alassane Dramane Ouattara.


“The discussion focused on the crisis-resolution process and the election,” said the chief of the United Nations Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), after this meeting.


Mr. Choi also said that the meeting was part of the consultations which had been initiated before the Security Council meeting on Cote d’Ivoire on 17 March.


With regard to the electoral process, the Special Representative said it was necessary to re-launch the electoral dynamic which has been weakened. “Now we need to have clear perspectives and know exactly where we are,” he said.


In this regard, Mr. Choi reiterated the three major principles to consolidate the achievements made so far in the process. These are peace and stability, safeguarding past achievements, including the provisional electoral list, as well as the production of the definitive electoral list as quickly as possible.
