The former president of the National Assembly of Côte d’Ivoire, a candidate for the GPS presidential election on October 31, 2020, has just been informed that his candidacy has been rejected. A decision that he disputes with the greatest lack of energy.
Soro Guillaime reacts following the rejection of the candidacy:
”I vigorously contest the unfair and unfounded decision taken this Monday, September 14, 2020 by the Constitutional Council. I consider that this is an unfair decision, politically motivated, legally lame and which is part of a logic of destroying democracy and the rule of law.
The Constitutional Council under Mamadou Koné has thus just endorsed, and without surprise, the forfeiture and perjury of Mr. Alassane Ouattara, thus devoting the submission of Law and Justice to the rule of the RHDP and its President. We cannot accept this coup d’etat enacted by the Constitutional Council.
In these circumstances, I announce that we will take a new step in our fight for democracy in our country. It will be harsh but we will win it without a doubt, ”he said.
