Togo Parliament to Review Bill on Constitutional Reform

Togo’s heads of a parliamentary commission were expected to meet on Wednesday to review a draft bill on constitutional reform.

The bill was introduced by the government last week in an endeavour to counter the growing anti-government protests which have been marked by police firing teargas at peaceful sit-ins held by opposition members as they called for President Faure Gnassingbe's resignation.

The reform bill review followed protesting opposition members forcing Togo’s parliament to suspend its session on Tuesday after the opposition cited a lack of promised discussion on constitutional reforms, in addition to anger over the continuing 50-year-rule of the Gnassingbe family.
