    Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast – (African Boulevard News) – Ivory Coast’s current ruling party, the RHDP, signed a partnership agreement with the opposition FPI party, led by Pascal Affi N’Guessan, on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2023. The agreement is aimed at fostering national reconciliation, social cohesion, and democracy in the country after years of political turmoil.

    The signing ceremony took place in Abidjan, Ivory Coast’s commercial capital. Several prominent figures from both parties were in attendance, including President Alassane Ouattara, Vice President Daniel Kablan Duncan, and FPI Secretary General, Assoumane Bakayoko.

    In his speech, President Ouattara emphasized the importance of national unity, stating that “Ivory Coast must learn to live together, despite our political differences” and that the RHDP and FPI have a shared responsibility to ensure peace, stability, and economic growth in the country.

    Pascal Affi N’Guessan echoed the president’s sentiments, adding that “this agreement is a step towards genuine reconciliation and a united Ivory Coast. The people of Ivory Coast are tired of violence and political instability, and we must work together to improve their lives.”

    The partnership agreement between the RHDP and FPI also includes provisions for electoral reform, including the creation of an independent electoral commission, the establishment of clear guidelines for political campaigning, and the promotion of transparent and fair elections.

    Political analysts and experts have praised the agreement, saying it is a positive step towards political stability and unity in Ivory Coast. Some have noted that the partnership may also have positive implications for the country’s economy, as foreign investors may be more likely to invest in a stable and peaceful Ivory Coast.

    “This is a historic moment for Ivory Coast,” said Dr. Bintou Keita, a political analyst and professor at the University of Abidjan. “The partnership between the RHDP and FPI is a significant step towards national reconciliation and a more stable political environment. This will only benefit the people of Ivory Coast.”

    The partnership agreement is a significant development in Ivory Coast’s political landscape. With the election season just around the corner, the agreement could serve as a foundation for a peaceful and democratic election, promoting growth and stability for the country.
