Ivory Coast’s Vice-President Daniel Kablan Duncan has resigned just after the sudden death of the Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly.

Patrick Achi, the secretary-general of the Ivory Coast presidency stated that Kablan Duncan was resigning citing peculiar reasons.

The vice-president had put in his resignation letter to President Alassane Ouattara in February, Mr Achi noted.

“After several communications, the last of which took place on Tuesday 7 July 2020, the president of the republic took note of his resignation and proceeded to sign the decree terminating Daniel Kablan Duncan,” Mr Achi said in a statement.

Mr Kablan was appointed as vice-president in 2017, the first to occupy the new position created by a new constitution the previous year following a referendum.
