The ruling party in Côte d'Ivoire, the RHDP, won a majority in the legislative elections on March 6 on Tuesday. Majority and opposition had claimed victory in recent days. </p><div> <p>The result was expected, as majority and opposition claimed victory. It is finally the party in power of Alassane Ouattara, the RHDP, which won, Tuesday March 9 in Ivory Coast, the legislative elections organized on March 6.
The Independent Electoral Commission (CEI), which was to publish these results on the night of Monday to Tuesday, had again delayed them, without explanation, and had not wished to give a partial count of the seats.
Saturday’s elections brought together, for the first time in ten years in Côte d’Ivoire, all the main political actors, giving hope for an appeasement of political life in a country with a recent history marked by strong tensions and electoral violence.
This victory of the RHDP should allow it to continue the policy of “reforms” of the Head of State, re-elected in October 2020 for a controversial third term. His re-election with more than 94% of the vote, in a ballot boycotted by the opposition, was marked by violence throughout the electoral period, which left 87 dead.
