Rentier Politics in Abidjan

Since the introduction of multiparty politics in Cote d’Ivoire, the Ivorian political class has been incapable of making the qualitative leap that would have allowed the country to fit into a model of democracy. The political class that has emerged from this period is similar to a conglomerate of rent-seekers, each group claiming selfishly a share of the cake, using any means to be best served.

No sense of responsibility emanates to meet the needs people and country … The policy is oriented towards gratification and selfish interests, as opposed to the national well-being“.

Mamadou Koulibaly
