Ivory Coast holds first post-war presidential poll
Ivory Coast is holding a bitterly contested presidential election, the first since the civil war ended in 2011.
The poll has been marred by prominent opposition candidates pulling out, citing widespread irregularities.
President Alassane Ouattara is running for a second term in the world’s largest cocoa producer.
Mr Ouattara’s main challenger is former Prime Minister Pascal Affi N’Guessan, the candidate of Mr Gbagbo’s Ivorian Popular Front.
Three of the 10 opposition candidates, including Charles Konan Banny, another former prime minister, have withdrawn from the election.
