2015 Presidential Election
The "Dominique Ouattara Association" composed of nearly 30,000 women across the country, have decided a few days before the Presidential election of 25 October 2015, to pay tribute to the First Lady Dominique Ouattara. The tribute ceremony took place, Wednesday, October 14, 2015, at the gendarmerie stadium of Anyama in the presence of Madame Henriette Bédié, President of the NGO ‘Servir’’ and wife of President Henri Konan Bédié, Kandia Camara, Minister of National and Technical Education, Robert Beugré Mambé, District Governor of Abidjan and many other personalities. The godmother of the association took the opportunity of this ceremony to invite local women to choose the candidate of the Houphouetists Rally for Democracy and Peace (RHDP), President Alassane Ouattara. For the wife of the RHDP candidate, Dr. Alassane Ouattara has the best profile for the position, plus a glowing stocktaking. A cocktail that places him in pole position for the upcoming presidential election on 25 October. "I urge you to withdraw your voter cards and turn out massively to make them your families, your relatives and friends, vote in order to win this election Takokelé. I mean my sisters Takokelé … A knockout blow. (…) Yes, on October 25 evening, Alassane Ouattara will be elected thanks to you my sisters, with an overwhelming majority. I rely on you! "She has put women on a mission.
Given the record of the single candidate of the RHDP, Mrs. Dominique Ouattara said that women were right to choose Dr. Alassane Ouattara in 2010. Among the major achievements to his credit, the wife of the Head of State has enumerated a few projects set up by the Head of State for the welfare of women and Ivorian populations.
Thus, she cited the Support Fund for the Women of Côte d'Ivoire (FAFCI) that has funded more than 100,000 women, many donations to women to improve their living conditions, the construction of thousands of schools that allowed compulsory education and the distribution of millions of school kits throughout the country and the creation of a Ministry specifically dedicated to youth employment that gives them credit for their projects. Building on all these reasons, she invited women from across the country to choose the candidate of the RHDP.
