The Prime Minister resigns

(Togo First) - The Togolese Prime Minister, Komi Sélom Klassou, has resigned. His letter of resignation was accepted by Togo's Head of State, a statement from the Presidency informed.  

The Togolese leader "congratulates the Prime Minister and the whole government for their efforts regarding the economic, political, and social contexts," as well as for their "encouraging performances amid the health crisis the world currently faces."

Klassou and the government were expected to resign months ago, after the election of President Faure Gnassingbé. However, this was delayed due to the pandemic (the country declared the state of a health emergency for the first time in April, and prolonged it on multiple occasions). 

The next government will, among others, have to deal with the following challenges: handling the pandemic and its numerous economic and social impacts, salvaging and readapting the national development plan while factoring in the current global crisis. 

Selom Klassou is one of the country's PMs to hold the position over a long period. He was appointed on June 5, 2015. 

Before a new government is formed, he and his team have to expedite current affairs.
