Ivory Coast prime minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly is dead

Prime Minister of Ivory Coast and member of the ruling party for presidential election in October, Amadou Gon Coulibaly, died just days after returning from two months of medical care in France.

During a weekly cabinet meeting, the 61-year-old, who had heart surgery in 2012, became unwell and was taken to a hospital where he died on Wednesday, President Alassane Ouattara said in a statement read on national television.

“Comrades, Ivory Coast mourns. It is with great pain that I declare that Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly has left us,” Ouattara said in a statement read by the Secretary-General of the presidency.

Last Thursday, after two months in France, Gon Coulibaly had returned to Ivory Coast to undergo heart exam and rest.

Within the governing RHDP party, Gon Coulibaly ‘s death is likely to set off a scramble to replace him as his candidate in an election that is considered a key stability test for the world’s top cocoa producer.

Ouattara’s first victory over incumbent Laurent Gbagbo in 2010 triggered a brief civil war in which around 3,000 people died and ahead of October ‘s election, political tensions were rising.

In March, Ouattara named Gon Coulibaly as the RHDP nominee after revealing that he would not be seeking a third term.

In May, Gon Coulibaly received medical attention in France, saying this was only for a check-up. He was permitted to fly outside given the closure of Ivory Coast airports due to the coronavirus pandemic.
