Ex-PM, Daniel Kablan Duncan Becomes Vice President in Ivory Coast


Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara on Tuesday named outgoing premier Daniel Kablan Duncan as the country’s first vice-president.

Making his announcement before parliament, which was meeting in special session, Ouattara described the 73-year-old as “devoted, a loyal collaborator” and “a patriot and great servant of the state.”

The new post of vice-president was set up under constitutional changes voted by referendum and approved in November.

Duncan’s nomination comes a day after he and his government resigned following legislative elections in December.
