Daniel Kablan Dun­can Des­ig­nated suc­ces­sor

The Africa Report - - COUNTRY FOCUS -

As a Chris­tian from the south, former prime min­is­ter and PDCI mem­ber Daniel Kablan Dun­can was a per­fect po­lit­i­cal choice for Pres­i­dent Alas­sane Ou­at­tara, a Mus­lim north­erner, when he chose the coun­try’s first vice-pres­i­dent in Jan­uary. Crit­ics point out that the vice-pres­i­dent does not have much power, but some Kablan Dun­can back­ers say that the po­si­tion will of­fer great op­por­tu­ni­ties when the suc­ces­sion race opens up ahead of elec­tions in 2020.
