Togo Prepares for Senatorial Elections

(Togo First) - Togo is gearing up for senatorial elections after the legislative and regional votes on April 29. The Minister of Territorial Administration, Hodabalo Awate, has started the process by asking mayors to provide personal information on each municipal councilor.

This data will help the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) create the electoral list of grand electors for the 2024 senatorial elections. The required documents must reach the Ministry by Friday, June 7, 2024.

Municipal and regional councilors will elect 2/3 of the Senate members. The President of the Republic will choose the remaining 1/3.

The Senate's establishment is crucial for electing the next President of the Republic and the President of the Council of Ministers, as per the new Constitution in force since May 6. This will be a first for Togo.

The country, it should be noted, held regional and legislative elections on April 29.
