Today, Ivory Coast seems isolated from the rest of the world, so much the pressures, the threats and the aggressions of all orders are poured on this country. But at a closer look, what is this » international community » which is so much incensed against this country of western Africa?
Why so many excitements around this election and why so many interventions in this internal affair of a sovereign country?
It is said that there is an unanimity of the international community on the Ivory Coast question…. It is a very reduced view…. What about China, Russia, Angola,the Arabic world, South America, Ghana etc.? All these countries are not part of this international community?
We wonder why France tramples shamelessly the supreme institutions of a sovereign country and pulls in its trail the European Union. We do not understand the haste of the UN which apparently made big errors of appreciation of the situation through its representative Mr CHOI.
We wonder about acts touching the illegality of countries which recognize ambassadors appointed by a man who is not legally the president of the Republic, because not having been invested and sworn in according to the constitutional laws of the country, and who allow to expel legally sworn ambassadors justifying themselves by saying that they only take into account statements of a « shadow government » that is not established towards the laws of Ivory Coast!!! These are very grave faults!!! If the situation was inverted, would Canada and Great Britain have accepted such a humiliation? Such an aggression? Such an insult for their sovereignty?
We ask ourselves questions on the obvious will of certain powers to ignore several African, Asian, American voices which call up to the restraint, to the wisdom and to the attentive study of the facts having surrounded these elections, because there are apparently many points of to be cleared up.
The world’s gone crazy… What? A country as Ivory Coast does not deserve the minimum of respect due to a sovereign, member nation of the United Nations?
The Ivory Coast population is not entitled at least to the consideration to which one the peoples of the other nations are entitled? Is Ivory Coast a playground where each can come to dictate his law and to place its puppets???
Us, people and friends of Ivory Coast from all over the world shout our revolt, our anger, our frustration and our distress. STOP to all this madness !
This is seriously about legitimacy and about legality. Whatever are the opinions, there is an unchanging fact: Ivory Coast is a sovereign country, in the same way as the others, and not a sub-state. The Ivory Coast Constitution can never be scoffed in the name of dark interests. The sovereign laws of Ivory Coast are over any partisan and individual will.
