The former youth president of the Democratic Party of Côte d’Ivoire (PDCI), Kouadio Konan Bertin, candidate for the presidential election of October 2020 did not fail to throw spikes at his political formation on the occasion of his inauguration as an independent candidate, this Sunday, October 4, at the Palace of Culture in Treichville.
“My political family, the PDCI-RDA has unfortunately chosen the voice of a candidacy of revenge with the sole purpose of regaining lost power, thus turning its back on the teachings of its creator”, suggested Kouadio Konan Bertin , in front of a large crowd, mostly made up of young people.
He said that his political formation has banned any internal democratic debate. For him, the PDCI by doing so, “moves further away from the demand for unity of the Ivorian people and promotes confrontation where democratic harmony requires”.
“Faced with this situation of imminent danger, faced with the negligence of the parties I decided, encouraged by tens of thousands of our fellow citizens to take my responsibilities, yes, I decided to present my candidacy for the presidential election “, he explained. A decision he says he made aware of out of love for his country and consideration for his compatriots.
Continuing, Kouadio Konan Bertin, declared candidate for the October 2020 presidential election, expressed fears that a poll-related civil war could break out.
“It is to be feared that this election is the poor remake of the film that plunged our country into the throes of civil war. Same nature, same script, same staging. Yes everything is in place for a new horror film for our country “, worried.
