UFC quits Togo election body

Togo's main opposition party said Saturday it had quit the commission organising presidential elections next month.
The Union of Forces for Change said in a statement that it did not want to be associated with an "electoral masquerade," charging that rules had not been followed in drawing up new electoral rolls.
The UFC claimed that a population census had been inadequate, minors and foreigners had been put on the roll in some areas and Togolese had not been properly made aware.
The party, headed by Gilchrist Olympio, had three members on the 17-seat commmission, whose president Taffa Tabiou said their resignation would make no difference.
A presidential decree on Thursday said the polls set for February 28 had been delayed until March 4 following an opposition request.
Campaigning, which had been due to start on February 13, will now start on February 16.
