Togo: Security forces begin voting in presidential poll

The Togolese security forces started voting early on Wednesday in several polling centers across the country ahead of the presidential election slated for 25 April 2015, APA notes here.

In the polling center of Adidogome technical school (in the outskirts of Lome), many members of the security forces could be seen lining up in the early hours of the morning to vote.

With their voters cards in their hands they were for the most part wearing uniform.

“I feel satisfied because we have noticed that everything has gone well. It started well. We have 22 polling stations in this Adidogome School. All the polling centers are open on time, Kuassi Ankou, the Chairman of the local electoral commission in the area told APA.

The anticipated vote has required the establishment of 214 polling stations in 47 polling centers across the country. The security forces will ensure the conduct of the polls on 25 April in calm and serenity.

Five candidates are running for presidency including the incumbent Faure Gnassingbe and the main opposition leader Jean Pierre Fabre.
