The deputies adopted the draft law on public demonstrations, on Friday.
"With this vote you are filled in a legal vacuum concerning the regulation of public events in Togo.
I would like to express the gratitude of the Government for this unanimous vote," said Pascal Bodjona (photo), the Minister of Territorial Administration and Decentralization.
The president of the National Assembly, Abass Bonfoh, congratulated those elected to the "analysis" and that they made the text before the vote and urged the government to make arrangements for the fair application of the provisions in the text.
"Now the event organizers are no longer required to obtain prior approval of the authority, it is enough to inform," said a member of the UFC (opposition).
