Presidential elections are scheduled to be held in Togo on 22 February 2020.[1]

Electoral system[edit]

Constitutional amendments approved in May 2019 changed the electoral system for the presidency to the two-round system,[2] replacing the previous first-past-the-post system.[3]

Campaign[edit]

In October 2019 the main opposition party, the National Alliance for Change, confirmed its leader Jean-Pierre Fabre would be its candidate.[4]

In January 2020, Emeritus Archbishop of Lomé, Philippe Fanoko Kossi Kpodzro, called for the suspension the presidential election to pave the way for electoral reforms.[5]
