The Cote d'Ivoire runs its government via a prime minister, the current one being Guillaume Soro, and also through a group known as the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is made up of 28 members. Members of the party who have obtained the top tier or level of membership are known as the "premiership." In the latest placements, so far only seventeen seats in the party have actually be filled.
Currently, Prime Minister Soro is working to put the right men into these spots. Government is something taken very seriously in this country, and as such, positions must be earned and are never freely given away. Generally, people must hold high political or community ranks and display highly obvious reasons for why they have been chosen to serve in such a high capacity. Being a member of the democratic party is something that is regarded as an honor, and it is treated extremely seriously.
