YAMOUSSOUKRO (AFP) - Former prime minister Guillaume Soro was unanimously elected the new speaker of Ivory Coast's parliament on Monday, becoming the first holder of the post in a decade.

The election of Soro, who was the only candidate, came after he stood down as premier last Thursday when official results from December's legislative elections were finally issued.
