Cote D’ivoire political crisis: president invites rival for talk

by Kunle Awosiyan

Ivory Coast’s President Alassane Ouattara has invited his rival, former President Henri Konan Bédié, for talks following violence sparked by his landslide win for controversial third term.

Opposition leaders boycotted last month’s vote and vowed to set up a transitional government that would organise fresh elections.

On Monday the constitutional court confirmed Mr Ouattara win.
No appeal against the presidential election is now possible, according to the Ivorian law.
Several opposition leaders face charges of terrorism and sedition after rejecting President Ouattara’s re-election.
