Clearing out the numbers
I have taken a look at the second round numbers on abidjan.net, and thought I’d try to clear out remaining question marks.
The Independent Electoral Commission (CEI) reported:
Ouattara (Ado): 2,483,164 votes (54.10%)
Gbagbo: 2,107,055 (45.90%)
What exactly did the Consitutional Council do?
Then the Constitutional Council (CC) took the CEI numbers and invalidated seven departments in the Savanes, Vallee du Bandama and Worodougou regions. For all other regions the CC and CEI numbers are exactly the same.
CEI Savanes: Ado: 307,530 Gbagbo: 21,203
CC Savanes: Ado: 17,347 Gbagbo: 1,414
CEI Val. Bandama: Ado: 244,471 Gbagbo: 41,789
CC Val. Bandama: Ado: 34,714 Gbagbo: 11,062
CEI Worodougou: Ado: 93,990 Gbagbo: 5,263
CC Worodougou: Ado: 49,438 Gabgbo: 3,261
In total the CC invalidated 52,518 Gbagbo votes and 544,492 Ado votes, thus obtaining the following result:
Ado: 1,938,672 votes (48.55%)
Gbagbo: 2,054,467 (51.45%)
The participation is lower in the CC numbers essentially due to the invalidated departments being included in the registered voters number, but – maybe surprisingly – not in the invalid votes number.
Comparing to the first round
As a comparison, in the first round the results in the three regions in question was:
Savanes: Ado: 255,228 Gbagbo: 19,312 Others: 22,588 Invalid votes: 21,059
Val Bandama: Ado: 144,637 Gbagbo: 27,305 Others: 118,177 Invalid votes: 15,216
Worodougou: Ado: 76,110 Gbagbo: 6,060 Others: 5,182 Invalid votes: 4,641
