The President of the ECOWAS Commission, H.E. Omar Alieu TOURAY, has deployed
a Fact-Finding mission to Togo to interact with key stakeholders on the latest
developments in the country ahead of the country’s legislative and regional elections
on 29th April 2024.

The elections, initially scheduled for 13th April, were first postponed to 20th April and
then further delayed to 29th April due to the gravity of the contentious constitutional
reforms the Government planned to introduce. These reforms passed through the
National Assembly, aimed to transform the Togolese political system from a
presidential to a parliamentary model. In this crucial context, the ECOWAS
The commission has deemed it necessary to dispatch a fact-finding mission to Togo.

Under the constitutional changes, members of Parliament will elect the President, who
will, in turn, appoint the President of the Council of Ministers with executive powers,
the equivalent of a Prime Minister under the Westminster system. Such a President
would be appointed from within the party or coalition with a parliamentary majority.
The seven-member Fact-Finding Mission, which is partly in response to an earlier
invitation by the Togolese government, is led by H.E. Maman Sambo Sidikou, the
immediate past head of the AU Mission in Mali and the Sahel. It shall remain in the
country from 15th to 20th April.

Abuja 15th April 2024.
