Togo’s Gnassingbe wins 4th term [The Morning Call]

We begin in Togo where the National Independent Electoral Commission announced on Sunday night that Head of State Faure Gnassingbé has been largely re-elected in the first round of the presidential election held on Saturday.

According to the electoral commision, official preliminary results show the Togolese leader to have garnered 72.36% of the votes, far ahead of the opposition candidate Agbéyomé Kodjo, who received only 18.37% of the votes.

Gnassingbe has led the country of eight million people since taking over in 2005 following the death of his father Gnassingbe Eyadema, who ruled for 38 years.
