At the national level, the majority goes to the party in power, the RHDP. Yopogon’s commune, which was the basis of former President Laurent Gagbo’s FPI, was in the hands of the presidential party. But she went into opposition. The wait was a long Tuesday. All that was missing were the results of the Abidjan municipalities of Markori, Port-Buut and Yopogon, and the latter, with 6 seats, were particularly expected. All three municipalities were won by the opposition.
