Ivorian Prime Minister Resigns, Dissolves Government

Cote d'Ivoire's Prime Minister Daniel Kablan Duncan has resigned and dissolved the country's government. Duncan announced his resignation after a meeting with President Alassane Ouattara, at the Presidential Palace in Abidjan. Duncan had been expected to stand down last Saturday, but held off after disgruntled soldiers, who were demanding pay increases took over army bases in cities across the West African country. Cote D'Ivoire's Prime Minister's resignation is part of expected procedures following the approval of a new constitution and parliamentary elections that were held last month, which saw President Ouattara keep hold of his majority in the legislature.
