Benin: Opposition doubles down on restistance to sponsorship system

The Beninese opposition is not backing off yet. It still rejects the use of sponsorship for next April's presidential election. On Tuesday, the candidate of the Front for the Restoration of Democracy called for its application to be postponed.

Frédéric Joël Aivo, whose candidacy was rejected by the electoral commission, denounced what he called an unjust system.

He called on the government to pass a law to postpone its implementation, which will ease tensions in the country.
