Recent history

Progressive Party of Côte d'Ivoire (in French: Parti Progressiste de Côte d'Ivoire) was a political party in Côte d'Ivoire founded in 1946. PPCI was founded by sectors that had supported the candidature of Kouamé Benzeme in 1945. Main leaders of PPCI were Kacou Aoulou, Joseph Coffi, Julien Yacobi and Etti Arthur. PPCI was pro-France.

In 1951 PPCI merged with Entente of Independents of Côte d'Ivoire (EDICI) to form the Party of the French Union in Côte d'Ivoire (PUFCI).
