WHY ARE THERE CLASHES?
President Ouattara, introduced last week that he would contest the October 31 presidential elections, a move that got here after his anointed successor Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly died of a coronary heart attack.
The announcement sparked fury amongst Ouattara’s critics, as he has already served two phrases and can solely contest a third via arguing that a constitutional alternate entitles him to reset the clock.
