Ally Coulibaly, designated by Alassane Ouattara to represent the Ivorian diplomacy in Paris and agreed to by France, took possession Tuesday premises of the Embassy of Côte d'Ivoire in the French capital. Ally Coulibaly, who was appointed ambassador accused by Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo out, Pierre Kipré, refuses to give way, entered the premises on Avenue Raymond Poincare, in the sixteenth arrondissement of the capital, a journalist from Reuters.
After entering the premises are unoccupied, he made the window a hand gesture about fifty supporters of Alassane Ouattara massed outside the building. A locksmith was called to open earlier, using a hammer and chisel, the office of Ambassador locked, and other parts of the mansion. Employees of the new ambassador then won a wall a portrait of Laurent Gbagbo. "I am here, very happy to take my job, can do the job for which I was appointed by Alassane Ouattara, President of the Republic," he told reporters. "I am now the ambassador of the Ivory Coast in France," he said while his supporters outside shouted "victory". The Ivorian electoral commission, certified by the UN, said Alassane Ouattara won the second round of presidential elections on November 28. This result was overturned by the Ivorian Constitutional Council, which gave Gbagbo the winner after invalidation of hundreds of thousands of ballots in areas favorable to Alassane Ouattara.
