Yas­mina Ouégnin Head­strong deputy

The Africa Report - - COUNTRY FOCUS -

Elected as the youngest par­lia­men­tar­ian in the pre­vi­ous leg­is­la­ture, Yas­mina Oueg­nin has a wil­ful streak. The daugh­ter of former di­rec­tor of pro­to­col Ge­orges Oueg­nin, she ran as an in­de­pen­dent and won her seat in Cocody in De­cem­ber 2016 af­ter the RHDP al­liance re­fused to back her. Oueg­nin is not afraid to crit­i­cise the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem for con­cen­trat­ing power in the pres­i­dency or to pub­licly dis­agree with her al­lies.
