Ivory Coast votes on divisive new constitution

People with placards reading 'Referendum October 30, 2016 - I vote yes' cheer during a rally organised by Ivory Coast's president Alassane Ouattara, at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny stadium in Abidjan, on October 22, 2016Ivory Coast goes to the polls on Sunday to vote on constitutional changes that President Alassane Ouattara says will help to end years of instability and unrest linked to the vexed issue of “Ivorian-ness”. The draft constitution put forward by Ouattara — which parliament overwhelmingly approved earlier this week — would also create a vice president picked by the president and a senate, a third of whom would be nominated by the head of state. The rich get richer and the poor stay poor,” said Bamory Kone, a mechanic in Adjame, an area that mostly supported Ouattara’s run for the top job in 2015.
