THE TRADITIONAL CHIEFTERY TESTED BY TRANSFERS AND POLITICAL COMPETITIONS IN C偲E D?IVOIRE: CASE OF KEIBLI IN THE SUB-PREFECTURE OF BLOLEQUIN IN THE COUNTRY WE

Abstract

Author(s): Mahier Jules Michel BAH

In the Wê rural societies, located in the west of Côte d'Ivoire, the chieftaincy changeover system has undergone unprecedented changes these recent years. This has led to the erosion of the consensual mode of appointment in favor of the electoral mode. This study aims at analyzing the related-issues. The data collected using the qualitative methods are analyzed from a systemic perspective. The emerging trend shows that the shift-from the consensual to elective- in the methods of appointment in the local governance under the combined influence of multiple factors is more related to the interference of political actors whose logic of action consists of controlling the village area in the perspective of local and / or national electoral competitions.
