The Democratic Party of Côte d'Ivoire (PDCI) was the sole legal party from 1960 to 1990. It would rule for another nine years until a 1999 coup. The Ivorian Popular Front (FPI) came to power after disputed elections in 2000, and would rule until it was ousted by the Rally of the Republicans in 2010. There are currently more than a hundred legal parties, though few have significant national support.
