Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire (PANA) - Ivorian Prime minister, Guillaume Soro, on Thursday tendered his resignation and that of his government to President Alassane Ouattara.
"In my capacity as an MP, I am no longer entitled to assume duties in executive power. This is why I have decided to tender my resignation and that of the government," he declared.
Analysts say Soro's resignation will pave the way for the fulfillment of the campaign promises of Ouattara to assign the position of Prime Minister to the Democratic Party of Côte d'Ivoire (PDCI), led by Henri Konan Bédié.
Bedie was Ouattara chief ally during the second round of the presidential election against then incumbent Laurent Gbabgo.
