There have been no reports of internal displacement following the second round of the Ivorian presidential election on 28 November. According to UNHCR on 8 December, approximately 1,000 people, mostly women and children, had already fled Côte d'Ivoire into Liberia. People fear a resumption of violence after both candidates, incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo and Alassane Ouattara, claimed victory.
