Almost all of the Ivorian opposition leaders met Sunday at the PDCI headquarters in Abidjan.

Together, they wanted to deliver a common message: the refusal of Alassane Outtara's candidacy for a third term, which they deem contrary to the Constitution.

Opposition parties have also called for the dissolutions of the Independent Electoral Commission and the Constitutional Council, two institutions accused of being subject to the executive and likely to favor the outgoing president.

The former Minister of Higher Education, Albert Toikeusse Mabri, ex-member of RHDP and president of UDPCI, is on RFI.
