Togo's new PM speaks of need to embrace dialogue

Togo's new Prime Minister Kwesi Séléagodji Ahoomey-Zunu took over office on Monday and pointed out the need to embrace dialogue and consultation between the political class in the country.

Ahoomey-Zunu said that dialogue and consultation "were basic rules for the functioning" of governments and that there was no other way of resolving the country's socio-political problems.

"We shall deepen dialogue to such an extent that everyone will be free to air their opinion although with a precise objective," Ahoomey-Zunu said during his swearing in speech that was delivered in the presence of his predecessor Gilbert Houngbo who resigned on July 11.

"I want to urge all Togolese people to understand that beyond our differences, we have a common destiny and we should therefore work to develop our country for the interest of all, ensure security for all and make Togo to be a country that is envied," he said.

Appointed prime minister on July 19, Ahoomey-Zunu is expected to form a government whose work has already been outlined by President Faure Gnassingbe.

The president had indicated that the government will have to work based on four pillars which include deepening democratic dialogue, respect for principles of good governance, promotion of a peaceful international society and protection of the people against insecurity as well as economic development.
