Gbagbo said the country's peace process was "once again, broken" and his comments came one day after Soro announced the suspension of voter registration.

Voting in the country's presidential election, repeatedly postponed since 2005, was due to take place at the end of February or early March.

Gbagbo's announcement was strongly criticised by by Niamkey Koffi of the PDCI (Parti démocratique de Côte d'Ivoire) who said the President had undone progress in the country's peace process and had "sawn off the branch on which he was sitting".
