Parliament resumes

The members of the Parliament are back in the Chamber for the first parliamentary session of the year. Because of the upcoming elections, this might even be the last session of the current legislative.

About twenty motions will be discussed, such as the status of the opposition, the financing of the political parties during electoral campaigns, and the new Penal code.

In the opening of the session, the Chair went back to the social tensions observed these last weeks following the adoption of the Public Service new status. 

"Our session begins at a moment when the social front, without boiling, is sending us signals related to the workers' working conditions. The general status of the Public service, passed on January 20th of 2013 at the request of the Government, is proof of the commitment of the latter to satisfy the workers claims, which are for the most legitimate. While encouraging the government to use their best efforts in order to find common grounds with the workers, the latter are invited to refrain from any action that might harm our economy and worsen their situation and that of the entire Togolese population." declared Abass Bonfoh (photo).

One of the main workers’ unions called to strike on the 4th and 5th of April.
