FPI boycotting vote

Laurent Gbagbo’s  Ivorian Popular Front party (FPI) is boycotting the vote according to Al Jazeera.  They also claim that the election will not be fair because the electoral commission is now controlled by President Ouattara.  This was of course the same line that was used by Ouattara when he was fighting to gain power in the nation.  Even with a fair election taking place the FPI will be able to score huge political points with its base, simply by claiming that the election commission is corrupt.  Sylvain Miaka Ouretto, now in control of the FPI said the elections are  “masquerade organised by the powers in place”.
