Ivoiren Election Officials Offer No Date

Nov. 11, 2009, midnight

Election commission chief Robert MAMBE told reporters on Wednesday that transitional elections will be "a little bit late," but he did not offer a day. His announcement officiated a decision last week to postpone November 29’s transitional vote. According to MAMBE, the commission will set a date when all major parties have agreed on one. They are supposed to meet this weekend with foreign mediators. Despite continued disagreement over the voter roll, President Laurent GBAGBO was publicly adamant this summer about elections on November 29. United Nations officials are meanwhile said to distribute provisional registers.
