Cote d’Ivoire

    The UN Security Council voiced concern at possible further setbacks to Côte d'Ivoire's already much-delayed presidential elections, urging all sides to ensure that this major step in restoring stability after civil war split the country in two takes place as scheduled on Nov. 29. "The Security Council reiterates that the Ivorian political actors are bound to respect the electoral timeline," the Council said in a statement read by its President for the month, Ambassador Susan Rice of the United States, noting that further delays in publishing a provisional voters list might endanger the timeline.
