Ivory Coast President Dissolves Government After Law Opposed

The president of Ivory Coast, the world’s largest cocoa producer, dissolved the government after members of the ruling coalition opposed a new law. Cocoa prices jumped the most in two months in London.

The Parti Democratique de Cote d’Ivoire, or PDCI, and the Union pour la Démocratie et la Paix en Côte d’Ivoire, or UDPCI, yesterday rejected a bill proposing that women have the same rights as men to head a family, said Amadou Gon Coulibaly, the general secretary of the presidency.
