Togo: Thousands Protest ahead of elections


Ahead of Togo’s parliamentary elections in October, a coalition of civil society and opposition groups called “Let's Save Togo” demonstrated in Lome on Saturday for the elections to be delayed to rectify anomalies in the electoral system.

The group plans to hold further marches followed by sit-ins at the independence square in Lome next week, setting up another potential showdown with the authorities who have previously ruled out demonstrations in prominent areas.
According to, coalition official Raphael Kpande-Adzare, the sit-ins would take place from Tuesday to Friday.

Protesters have been seeking a delay in parliamentary elections to allow reforms to first take place, as well as the repeal of changes to electoral laws that they say the government pushed through.
