Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Oct 16, 2020 / 11:01 pm (CNA).- Religious leaders in Ivory Coast have appealed for dialogue and peace ahead of the presidential election, scheduled for Oct. 31 amid persistent tensions.

President Alassane Ouattara is seeking a third term, and tens of thousands of Ivorians have protested the move. More than a dozen people have been killed in the protests in recent weeks.

There are also fears whether the election will be just, after 40 out of 44 candidates were rejected by the Constitutional Council.

Praise the Lord
