WASHINGTON, Dec 5 (Reuters) - The World Bank and African Development Bank on Sunday expressed "great concern and frustration" with the disputed poll in Ivory Coast and said they would reassess their lending program to the West African nation.

"In line with our policies, we will continue to closely monitor developments and reassess the usefulness and effectiveness of our program given the breakdown in government," the development banks said in a joint statement. (Reporting by Lesley Wroughton, editing by Chris Wilson)
