The president, Alassane Ouattara, and his allies will remain in power throughout the 2019-23 forecast period. However, election-related political instability will rise in the run-up to the 2020 presidential poll.

The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the ruling party to win the presidential election and secure a majority in the legislative election in 2021, helped by public satisfaction with robust economic growth and better political stability since the party came to power in 2011.

We expect the government to comply with the IMF programme until June 2019, when it ends. After that, the government will want policy freedom ahead of the elections in 2020­21, and in 2022-23 there will not be any pressing need to return to the Fund.
