Togo gets a new constitution

(Togo First) - In Togo, the bill to revise the constitution was voted, unanimously, yesterday by the parliament.

The new bill restricts the presidential term to five years renewable once and for a president to be elected, he or she will be elected through uninominal suffrage, according to a majority, two rounds system. 

Mandates of deputies and members of the constitutional court have also been limited. Both are elected for a period of six years but the first can renew their term twice while the second group can only do so once. 

Let’s emphasize that “completed or ongoing terms at the date at which the present bill becomes effective will not be taken into account for the implementation of measures set by articles 52 and 59 relative to term limit.”
