The Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara has dissolved his cabinet. The Jeannot Ahoussou Kouadio-led cabinet was formed in March 2011. It is not yet known when a new government will be formed or the reasons behind the decision.
The announcement was made during the Council of Ministers held every Wednesday.
The Secretary-General of the Government Amadou Gon Coulibaly is expected to meet with the press and it is hoped that he will shed light on the decision.
The government was formed in June 1, 2011, and left unchanged until March 2011, when current Prime Minister Jeannot Ahoussou-Kouadio was appointed in place of the former leader of the rebellion, Guillaume Soro, now president of the National Assembly.
