Togolese Government Adopts Bill for Administrative Procedure Code

(Togo First) - Togo should soon adopt an administrative procedure code. The project made headway at the last Council of Ministers meeting chaired by the Head of State, Faure Gnassingbé, on September 27, 2023.

The Council, last Wednesday, examined and adopted a draft bill on the administrative procedure code.

"Adopting this text is part of the dynamics of the justice modernization program initiated by the Head of State and contributes to the celerity and efficiency of the judicial system in accordance with the objectives of axis 1 and axis 3 of the government roadmap 2020- 2025", the government said.

The code aims to provide a framework and reinforce respect for citizens' rights in their interactions with the administration. It will provide a legal framework for controlling the legality of the acts of national administrations and local authorities. The document will be later submitted to deputies for consideration.

In 2019, Togo proceeded to judicial reorganization, which introduced administrative chambers within courts at all levels. The goal was to let the people have easier access to administrative justice.
