Faure Gnassingbe

Togo's President Faure Gnassingbe has won a third term with 58.75% of the vote in Saturday's polls, the electoral commission said, with his main rival Jean-Pierre Fabre taking 34.95%.

"The national electoral commission states that Faure Essozimna Gnassingbe has been elected based on provisional results which are subject to confirmation by the Constitutional Court," the commission's head Taffa Tabiou said late on Tuesday.

"It is the victory of the Togolese people who want, with the president Faure Gnassingbe, to continue advancing toward progress and in peace," the presidency said.

Unsurprisingly, Fabre came out on top in Lome, the capital, which historically goes to the opposition, despite gains by Faure there.
