Ivory Coast’s Vice President Daniel Kablan Duncan resigns, days after PM’s death

Ivory Coast’s Vice President Daniel Kablan Duncan has resigned.

Patrick Achi, the secretary-general of the presidency, told reporters that Kablan Duncan, who previously served as Ouattara’s prime minister, was leaving for personal reasons.

Patrick Achi said Ouattara had finally accepted Duncan’s resignation last Wednesday, the same day Gon Coulibaly, who had longstanding heart problems, died after a cabinet meeting.

Despite several years of relative peace, ethnic and regional rivalries linger, and this year’s election is seen as a test of stability for Ivory Coast.
