    Ivoirian President Alassane Ouattara has told zealous party supporters asking him to stand for a third term that he needs time to reflect.

    President Ouattara's comments came at the end of a meeting with party officials in Abidjan on Wednesday.

    Ouattara became the preferred choice for his ruling RHDP, after the death of Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly, his hand-picked successor early this month.
