Recent history

Youth of the African Democratic Rally of Côte d'Ivoire (in French: Jeunesse du Rasseblement Démocratique Africain de Côte d'Ivoire), a political youth movement in Côte d'Ivoire. J.R.D.A.C.I. was the youth wing of the African Democratic Rally (R.D.A.) in that country.

J.R.D.A.C.I. was founded in Treichville on March 14, 1959. It was fiercely anti-colonial. Félix Houphouët-Boigny rapidly saw J.R.D.A.C.I. as a nest of opposition, and ordered it to dissolve.

The general secretary of J.R.D.A.C.I. was Amadou Koné, later Minister of Health.
