ELECTION IN COTE D’IVOIRE: THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION PLAYS THE TRANSPARENCY CARD

PLANÈTE PAIX responded to the invitation of the Independent Electoral Commission (CEI) and the United Nations Development System (UNDS) on Friday, August 21, 2020 at the premises of (CMIE) in Angré 7ème Tranche.
For IEC, it was about informing voters, the national and international community, groups and political parties, the media as well as Civil Society Organizations of the opening of the Media and Electoral Information Center (MEIC).
The main objective of the MEIC is to make information relating to the electoral process available to all stakeholders. This space, dedicated to journalists, radio presenters, bloggers and influencers, as well as to political parties, researchers and various Civil Society Organizations and the general public, is the place of reference for electoral information and civic education. In addition, this tool will allow the Ivorian electoral management body to raise awareness, build capacities and educate the general public in electoral matters through national electoral experts in collaboration with those of the United Nations System including the UNDP, UNWOMEN and UNESCO.

DECLARATION OF PLANETE PAIX RELATING TO THE SOCIOPOLITICAL SITUATION IN COTE D’IVOIRE MARKED BY THE DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE 3rd MANDATE OF ALASSANE OUATTARA

DECLARATION OF PLANETE PAIX RELATING TO THE SOCIOPOLITICAL SITUATION IN COTE D’IVOIRE MARKED BY THE DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE 3rd MANDATE OF ALASSANE OUATTARA

PLANETE PAIX observes that since the announcement made on August 6, 2020, by President Ouattara to run for a third term, unrest has erupted in the country. These disturbances, unfortunately, resulted in the loss of human life and material goods.
PLANETE PAIX, therefore, invites President Ouattara to reconsider his decision to run for a third term; the supreme interest of the Ivorian Nation, the safeguard of peace and tranquility of the Ivorian people, demand it, no sacrifice being too much to save lives and the nation.
Mr. President, if your umpteenth term should have unfortunate consequences for the country, do not come forward.
PLANETE PAIX calls on the entire political class and encourages them to meditate on and appropriate the words of Emmanuel Kant taken from his book Project of Perpetual Peace, 1795.
“True politics cannot take a step without first paying tribute to morality. […] All politics must bow to the Law, and only so can it hope to arrive, albeit slowly, to a degree where it shines with lasting brilliance. ”
PLANETE PAIX notes with bitterness that for decades the Ivorian politician has only traumatized and mourned the Ivorian people.
PLANETE PAIX protests such selfish, dehumanizing, barbaric and unholy acts of the Ivorian politician which undermine the collective conscience and continuously make the Ivorian people suffer, loved in appearance by all political parties and yet manipulated and infantilized.
PLANETE PAIX puts the Ivorian politician in front of his responsibility before the history and the Ivorian people and invites all the sons and daughters of Cote d’Ivoire to a friendly and fraternal dialogue for genuine reconciliation.
When the interest of the nation is threatened, dialogue remains the only recourse, but it must be frank, sincere and constructive.
PLANETE PAIX considers that dialogue between Ivorians is a categorical and not hypothetical imperative. There must be neither abstraction nor exclusion, and every Ivorian must do it.
Ivorians people, it is high time you came together to build happiness and peace in Cote d’Ivoire.
PLANETE PAIX urges every Ivorian to be the guarantor of peace prior and essential to any harmonious development and to act accordingly to deal with the most urgent.
Ivorians people, PLANETE PAIX, calls on you to be vigilant and asks you to stand up against political manipulation in all its forms, whatever its origin, which does not honor the country.
PLANETE PAIX denounces all the human rights violations which are continually perpetrated in Cote d’Ivoire, in particular those of recent events.
PLANETE PAIX condemns with its last energy the arbitrary detentions of Ivorian citizens and calls on the Ivorian authorities for their immediate and unconditional release.
PLANETE PAIX calls on the forces of order on which weighs the obligation to supervise the demonstrations to do it with a republican spirit and with conventional weapons.
PLANETE PAIX bows to the memory of Ivorian citizens who were soon torn from life by the fault of the Ivorian politician.
PLANETE PAIX calls on the Ivorian authorities to shed light on these unnecessary acts of killings and to punish those responsibly.
PLANETE PAIX appeals to the wisdom of all political actors, in particular the President of the Republic, for a peaceful and fraternal settlement of this umpteenth crisis.
PLANETE PAIX encourages the leaders of civil society organizations to become actively involved in this dialogue and to support this process objectively.
Finally, PLANETE PAIX invites the international community to do everything possible and take all the necessary measures to avoid the worst.
Finally, let everyone ask himself:
“Is my action or decision in favor of or against the peace and tranquility of my nation and my compatriots?”
PLANETE PAIX, therefore, invites Ivorians to go beyond legal and political debates on the number of terms of office to appreciate the ethical and human nature of their actions. In other words, to appreciate the consequences of their actions and decisions in the life of the Ivorian nation and people.
