Final results of presidential election expected on Thursday

Togo's Constitutional Court will on Thursday announce the final results of the March 4 presidential élections.
The provisional results declared by the National Independent Electoral Commission (CENI) showed that outgoing President Faure Gnassingbe had been re-elected with 60.92 percent of the total votes cast.
His closest contender, Jean-Pierre Fabre of the United Forces of Change (UFC), got 33.94 percent of the votes. Fabre has been contesting the results, calling on the people to join in resistance rather than file any complaint with the Constitutional Court.
But according to well placed sources, five cases have already been lodged at the court by senior officials of other parties that had candidates in the presidential race.
The Assembly of Togolese People (RPT), the ruling party whose candidate was re-elected, has also filed a complaint.
A total of seven candidates ran in the presidential race. The other opposition candidates got the following results : 0.85 percent for Yawovi Agboyibo of the Action Committee for Renewal (CAR), 0.85 percent for Agbeyome Kodjo of the Organization to Build Togo in Unity and Solidarity (OBUTS), 0.66 percent for Kafui Adjamagbo-Johnson of the Democratic Convention for African People (CDPA), 0.3 percent for Lawson Nicolas of the Party for Renewal and Redemption (PRR) and 0.3 percent for Kagbara Bassabi of the PanAfrican Democratic Party (PDP).
