Soro was previously right hand man to president Alassane Ouattara but the pair fell out in 2019 with the head of state accusing him of fomenting a civilian and military insurrection.
Soro, who was once a prominent figure in Ivorian politics, had resided in France since leaving office. During his time in exile, he faced charges related to his tenure as Prime Minister, including allegations of embezzlement and abuse of power.
However, in a surprising turn of events, Soro has declared his intention to return to Ivory Coast and engage in national politics once again.
His decision has been met with a mixed response from the Ivorian public, with some expressing hope for his return, while others remain skeptical of his motives.
Soro’s return, if successful, could potentially reshape the political landscape of Ivory Coast, as he still commands a significant following within the country.
Preparing for a future presidential bid
His political career has seen moments of both success and controversy, and his return could reignite old divisions and alliances in the Ivorian political scene. Many are now speculating about Soro’s political ambitions upon his return.
While he has not explicitly stated his intentions, some believe that he may be positioning himself for a future presidential bid. However, others suggest that Soro’s reentry into Ivorian politics may simply be an attempt to clear his name and restore his reputation, rather than a bid for power.
As Guillaume Soro prepares to return, he faces several challenges, including the potential legal repercussions of his past actions and the need to rebuild his political base.
It remains to be seen how the Ivorian public and political elite will receive his return, and whether Soro will be able to make a lasting impact on the country’s political future.
Guillaume Soro’s decision to end his self-imposed exile and return to Ivory Coast has brought significant attention to the country’s political sphere. His return could potentially have far-reaching consequences and may usher in a new era of politics in Ivory Coast.
Nevertheless, the ultimate outcome of Soro’s return remains uncertain, and only time will reveal the true impact of his reentry into Ivorian politics.
