Description

Cote d'ivoire's top court has validated the results of a referendum backing a new constitution. President Alassane Ouattara has welcomed the results and says it will help the country turn the page after a decade of political turmoil. An overwhelming majority of Ivorians voted to back the country's new laws. The charter institutes a new post of vice president. It also scraps a controversial clause that said both parents of a presidential candidate must be natural-born Ivorians. Under the new law only one parent must be Ivorian. The previous constitution was drafted under military rule after a 1999 coup.
