Local governance: Government halves candidacy fee for women

(Togo First) - Women participating in local elections next June 30 will pay a fee of CFA10,000 to this end. This is half the amount set for male candidates.

The measure decided during the ministers’ council of May 8, 2019, aims to “promote women candidacy and their participation in local governance.

This is part of a more general move to get women and youth more involved in governance in Togo. A point on which President Gnassingbé stressed during his speech to the nation on the sidelines of the 59th anniversary of Togo’s independence.

Let’s recall that a similar measure had been enacted during the legislative elections last December 20.
