ABIDJAN (AFP) - Ivory Coasts electoral commission Thursday named former prime minister Alassane Ouattara winner of the countrys disputed and violence-marred presidential election. Ouattara won 54 percent of the vote in the November 28 runoff election while President Laurent Gbagbo had 46 percent, senior commission official Auguste Miremont told AFP, citing provisional official figures. Witnesses said soldiers shot dead eight of Ouattaras supporters on Wednesday night as the wait for delayed results dragged on and the UN Security Council held an emergency meeting on Thursday to discuss the crisis. The UN Security Council on Thursday warned it would take action against anyone who obstructs Ivory Coasts election process after the announcement of results. The vow of appropriate measures a veiled threat of sanctions was made after urgent consultations by the 15-nation body on renewed tensions in the West African nation where incumbent Laurent Gbagbo lost Sundays presidential election runoff to Alassane Ouattara. The delayed provisional results were only announced as the Security Council met. The Security Council welcomed the announcement and reiterated their readiness to take the appropriate measures against those who obstruct the electoral process.
