The counting and pooling of results continued Thursday night in Togo after the presidential election. The Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) in charge of organizing the election, has set no date for the announcement of the winner.
The partial results collected in some polling stations across the country by republicoftogo.com can however have trends on how the Togolese voted.
The candidate of the RPT (in power), Faure Gnassingbé gained majority in the North and in the Plateaux region.
In Lome, Jean-Pierre Fabre of the UFC (opposition) came first, but two points need to be taken into consideration.
First, the turnout was below 50% then, Faure Gnassigbé would achieve a score much higher than in 2005 and 2007, during the parliamentary elections. But Lome is a traditional stronghold of the opposition and, in particular the UFC.
All these figures are of course to confirm and cover only a limited number of polling stations.
