Ouattara sworn in as President of Ivory Coast
Alassane Ouattara has been sworn in as President of Ivory Coast, CNN reports. “It is the beginning of a new era of reconciliation for all the sons and daughters of our dear Ivory Coast,” Ouattara said after taking the swearing in oath.
Though his swearing in ceremony tomorrow was relatively simple, a more lavish ceremony is scheduled to be held in a few weeks. Ouattara’s swearing in follows the ousting of former President Laurent Gbagbo who is currently under house arrest in the northern part of the country.
