Abstract

The president, who is chief of state, has retained a strong executive position with wide powers, being able to appoint the prime minister (head of government), appoint members of the government and submit legislation to government, where approval is often a given. The president is elected by popular vote for a five-year term, renewable once. A second round is required if an absolute majority is not achieved in the first round. A two-term limit for the president was approved in a constitutional referendum in October 2016, along with several other amendments. These included that presidential candidates should have one natural-born Ivorian parent (previously both), removed the age limit of 75 for presidential candidates and created the position of vice president.
