1. During the closing meeting of the State visit of Mr. Alassane Dramane Ouattara to the Marahoué region, from September 23 to 26, 2020, Mr. Hamed Bakayoko, Prime Minister of Côte d’Ivoire, visibly shaken by the word order of civil disobedience launched by President Henri Konan Bédié on behalf of the Ivorian opposition, saw fit to hold a hawkish speech, in the face of a crowd of white-hot supporters: “Mr. President, we will be obliged to you disobey a little if the opposition continues to issue slogans for the destruction of state buildings. We are no longer going to accept the mess. “They will find us outside their doors with the note of what they destroyed even though some of them are housed in state housing. We cannot accept that these people come and destroy the achievements that you have made. in this country, which some among them even benefited in their villages whereas in their time they did nothing ”
2. This call for generalized violence against Ivorian opposition activists comes just days after the good offices mission of a UN delegation led in Côte d’Ivoire by Mohamed Ibn Chambas to the effect of ” renew United Nations support for the organization of a peaceful, inclusive, transparent and credible presidential election in Côte d’Ivoire on October 31, and to encourage stakeholders to work together for peace and stability. ”
3. This is why, the political platform, Ensemble pour la Démocratie et la Souveraineté (EDS) having as a political referent, President Laurent GBAGBO protests against this exit of Mr. Hamed Bakayoko who hovers the specter of civil war on Côte d’Ivoire in this electoral period.
4. EDS calls national and international public opinion on the resurgence of violence maintained by Mr. Alassane Ouattara, outgoing Head of State who, since the announcement of his unconstitutional candidacy on August 6, 2020 and despite the various orders of the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) multiplies acts of defiance against the Ivorian Constitution, clearly showing its desire to operate an electoral hold-up through deliberately botched elections.
5. For EDS, even if the RHDP power, through the caporalisation of the CEI and the Constitutional Council, is assured of having “everything fixed, buckled and managed” nothing is yet lost for Côte d’Ivoire, which deserves to leave definitively the infernal circle of rigged elections with disastrous consequences.
6. This is why EDS, faithful to the political philosophy of “Sit down and discuss” of its referent and candidate, President LAURENT GBAGBO reiterates its appeal to the outgoing Head of State, in order to open without delay, a responsible, frank and sincere political dialogue with political and social forces for free, fair, transparent, regular, inclusive and peaceful elections in the best interests of Côte d’Ivoire, our common heritage.
