Ivory Coast will hold parliamentary elections on Dec. 18, the government said Thursday, after hailing victory in a referendum on constitutional change.Some 93 percent of those who voted on Sunday backed the draft referendum, leading Ouattara to claim a massive endorsement.The opposition said the turnout figure of 42 percent showed that its call for a boycott had been well heeded. The opposition plans to use the legislative election to change the balance of power in the national assembly, where its 2011 boycott left 90 percent of seats in the president's camp.
