Togo - Parliamentarian meeting : MPs force adjournment

  • 13 September 2017


    Lawmakers in Togo are returning to the parliament today for the much-anticipated tabling of a constitutional reform bill recently prepared by the government of President Faure Gnassingbe.

    The drafting of the bill followed weeks of mass opposition protest in Lome and across the country for the reinstatement of a presidential term limit.
    On Tuesday, opposition MPs forced the adjournment of parliament, in protest at the absence of the bill. They accused the parliament of being out of touch with the political realities in Togo, for tabling something else other than the reform bill.
    Bridgitte Adjamagbo Johnson, a former Presidential candidate is one of the opposition leaders. She’s been to Benjamin Tetteh on the line from Lome.
