Power-sharing could be 'an option' in Ivory Coast

Elections in Ivory Coast, the world's largest cocoa producer, have resulted in deadlock after both of the main candidates - Laurent Gbagbo and Alassane Ouattara - were sworn in as president.

On Monday, former South African President Thabo Mbeki, the African Union mediator, left the country after two days of talks failed to resolve the crisis.

Knox Chitiyo, head of the Africa programme at the UK foreign policy think tank RUSI, believes that having two presidents could eventually lead to some sort of power-sharing.
