Election officials wait for people to vote in the presidential election at a polling station in Zebizekou, Gagnoa, in western Ivory Coast October 25, 2015. Gagnoa is former Ivory Coast's President Laurent Gbagbo's home region. Voting began in Ivory Coast on Sunday in an election likely to give President Alassane Ouattara a second term, a crucial event after a decade-long political crisis that ended in a 2011 civil war. Voter turnout will be critical to legitimising Ouattara's mandate if he wins as expected. Leaders of a break-away faction of the Ivorian Popular Front (FPI), the party of ex-President Gbagbo, have called for a boycott of the election. Gbagbo's refusal to recognise Ouattara's 2010 poll victory sparked the civil war. Gbagbo himself is now in The Hague awaiting trial before the International Criminal Court charged with crimes against humanity. Polling stations in pro-Gbagbo villages in the former president's home region around the cocoa hub of Gagnoa were devoid of voters. REUTERS/Thierry Gouegnon

Toto Amessan Jean Marie, 33, waits to start teaching at a Catholic church, where he works as a volunteer, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast October 20, 2015. In the five years since President Alassane Ouattara was elected, Ivory Coast has emerged from a decade-long political crisis and a 2011 civil war to become Africa's rising star. As other economies on the continent have crumbled amid a global commodities crash that has sparked capital flight and tanked currencies, Ivory Coast has posted GDP growth of around 9 percent over the past three years, according to the government. Ouattara is expected to ride the economic boom to a comfortable election victory in a poll on Sunday. But many in the West African nation complain they have been left behind and the president's critics warn that economic exclusion is undermining efforts to close the book on the years of unrest. Jean Marie holds a Masters of Law and has not been able to find a job after completing his studies. Picture taken October 20, 2015. REUTERS/Luc Gnago

From Abidjan’s packed airport arrivals hall to the buildings mushrooming across the capital, Ivory Coast is booming, a rare African bright spot as the world’s biggest cocoa producer bounces back from a 2011 civil war. Buyers of luxury apartments include Ivorians living overseas, while promoters from Morocco, Turkey and China are attracted by tax breaks. Elections - the source of national unrest four years ago - are due in a month but there is no let-up in investment given expectations of an easy victory for incumbent Alassane Ouattara. The government predicts 9.6 percent growth this year, making the former French colony the standout performer on a continent hammered by a slump in commodity prices, capital outflows and tumbling currencies.

A woman sits under a palm tree at dusk after a block party in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, September 12, 2015. From Abidjan’s packed airport arrivals hall to the buildings mushrooming across the capital, Ivory Coast is booming, a rare African bright spot as the world’s biggest cocoa producer bounces back from a 2011 civil war. Buyers of luxury apartments include Ivorians living overseas, while promoters from Morocco, Turkey and China are attracted by tax breaks. Elections - the source of national unrest four years ago - are due in a month but there is no let-up in investment given expectations of an easy victory for incumbent Alassane Ouattara. The government predicts 9.6 percent growth this year, making the former French colony the standout performer on a continent hammered by a slump in commodity prices, capital outflows and tumbling currencies.
