ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara plans to name a new government on Tuesday, after dissolving its predecessor because of a row within his ruling coalition, three government sources told Reuters on Friday.

Two sources close to the president and one to Ouattara's RDR party also said discussions between the RDR and its coalition partner, the PDCI of former president Henri Konan Bedie, had begun on Friday in a bid to resolve their differences.
