Court confirms Faure’s re-election

Togo's Constitutional Court on Thursday confirmed the re-election of outgoing President Faure Gnassingbe (photo) with 60.88 percent of the vote cast.
The court made the confirmation after the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) published the provisional results showing that the 43-year-old incumbent won 60.92 percent of the tally in the March 4 presidential election.
CENI was authorized to publish the provisional results, pending a final decision by the Constitutional Court in the West African country.
According to the Constitutional Court, Jean-Pierre Fabre, the 58-year-old candidate of the leading opposition United Forces for Change (UFC), obtained 33.93 percent instead of 33.94 percent unveiled by CENI.
A total of seven candidates ran in the presidential race. The other opposition candidates included Yawovi Agboyibo of the Action Committee for Renewal, Agbeyome Kodjo of the Organization to Build Togo in Unity and Solidarity, Kafui Adjamagbo-Johnson of the Democratic Convention for African People, Lawson Nicolas of the Party for Renewal and Redemption and Kagbara Bassabi of the PanAfrican Democratic Party.
An estimated 2 million eligible voters out of the country's 6. 15 million population cast their ballots in the election, which ended in calm.

Final results

Faure Gnassingbé (RPT) : 60,88%
Jean-Pierre Fabre (UFC) : 33,93%
Yawovi Agboyibo (CAR) : 2,95%
Agbéyomé Kodjo (OBUTS) : 0,85%
Brigitte Kafui Adjamagbo-Johnson (CDPA) : 0,65%
Bassabi Kagbara (PDP) : 0,40%
Nicolas Lawson (PRR) : 0,29%
