I.Coast's Ouattara wins party backing for re-election bid

Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara on Sunday won his party’s backing to run for re-election in this year’s upcoming vote as the country seeks to move on from years of political turmoil. The 73-year-old incumbent leader faced no challengers as he was officially chosen as the presidential candidate for the ruling Rally of Republicans (RDR) at a special party congress in Abidjan. More than 6,000 party members shouted “Yes, yes!” when asked by RDR secretary general Amadou Soumahoro whether the president should be given a second mandate. The party “has appointed Alassane Ouattara, economist, as the RDR candidate”, she told the crowd at the Treichville sports palace, which also included thousands of sympathizers who had shown up to show their support for the president.
