Ivory Coast: Coalition partners to merge after elections

The two main parties in Ivory Coast's ruling coalition will merge after elections later this year, aiming to consolidate support for President Alassane Ouattara. Ex-president Laurent Gbagbo's Ivorian Popular Front- the West African nation's third major party and its only opposition movement - is on the verge of breaking up due to disputes within its leadership.

Former President Henri Konan Bedie, who heads the Democratic Party of Ivory Coast, said a working group had been set up to prepare its fusion with Ouattara's Rally of the Republicans after the October polls.
