Laurent Bgagbo has vowed to stay put as the president of Cote DiVoire.
Bgagbo has dismissed threats of a military action against his government.
ECOWAS and the West have continued to lobby for the Bgagbo exit.
Raila Odinga of Kenya has been appointed by AU to mediate the political impasse in Ivory Coast.
Ivory Coast is almost nearing a civil strife as rebel supported Quattarra is vowing to be president at all means.
However, the incumbent who has been leading the country for a decade is vowing to remain in power.
Bgagbo is being given support by the military and he is keen to protect the top officials in the army.
