Ivorian former president Gbagbo barred from elections

 Laurent Gbagbo who was acquitted for crimes against humanity

Ivory Coast’s former President Laurent Gbagbo has been barred from running for the presidency in upcoming elections after a court upheld the electoral commission’s decision to remove him from the electoral list.

His lawyer Claude Mentenon told AFP news agency that there was no further legal recourse inside Ivory Coast. The country’s electoral commission struck him out of the list of candidates because he was convicted of a crime.

The president of the electoral commission, Ibrahime Coulibaly-Kuibiert, had in August said that anyone convicted of a crime would be struck from the list of candidates. He made the announcement while revealing the revised electoral list.

Four candidates including former rebel leader Guillaume Soro were struck off the list. Mr Gbagbo was acquitted in January 2019 after being charged with crimes against humanity in connection with violence following a disputed 2010 elections.
