Voter registration suspended in Ivory Coast

Voter registration suspended in Ivory Coast

A top election official in Ivory Coast has announced that voter registration will be temporarily suspended following an attack on the electoral commission's offices.
Election Commissioner Jean-Baptiste Gommi says he hopes voter registrations will resume Tuesday. He said security measures were being put in place because of the attack Monday on two offices of the Independent Electoral Commission.
The suspension casts further doubt on Ivory Coast's proposed Nov. 30 presidential election date. Opposition politicians and members of the electoral commission have all said the election should be postponed till 2009.
