Elections in Ivory Coast

This edition of African Perspectives focused on the impasse of the November 28th elections in Ivory Coast. With both Alassane Ouattara and Laurent Gbagbo claiming victory in the elections, the international community is calling of Gbagbo to step down, and threatening military intervention.

The first interview we conducted is with Mawuli Dake, who speaks about the dangers of a military intervention and war mongering by the international community. We also spoke with Gary Busch, who discussed the historical context of this election, especially of formal colonial power France.
