Ivory Coast presidential election: will the economic boom influence votes?

With so many challengers either disqualified or having stood down in the upcoming presidential election, will the incumbent Alhassane Ouattara get an easy victory in his controversial third term bid? And have the years of economic growth made a difference in the pockets of Ivorians? In Nigeria, a judicial panel of inquiry is to hear evidence related to last week's incidents in Lagos in which Nigerian armed forces are alleged to have shot dead demonstrators protesting against police brutality. International pressure has been mounting on Saudi Arabia to improve the treatment of migrants. It follows reports last month describing how Ethiopian workers were kept in detention camps and subjected to horrific conditions.
