    After months of political turmoil, voters have cast their ballots to choose legislators in Ivory Coast.

    The poll is seen as a test of the nation’s stability after a presidential election in October led to violence.

    President Alassane Ouattara’s opponents have disputed his bid for a third-term. Now, two of them have teamed up in a coalition to prevent him from expanding his power.

    Henri Konan Bedie and Laurent Gbagbo fielded parliamentary candidates on a joint list.

    Will this West African country overcome this turmoil?
