Togo: Gnassingbe calls for a rereading of the new Constitution

Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe asked Togolese deputies, Friday evening, to reread the new constitutional law passed by parliament on the night of March 25.

A press release from the Presidency of the Togolese Republic, distributed on social networks, states that it is in view of the interest aroused within the population by the text (of constitutional law) since its adoption, that “the President of the République asked today (editor's note, March 29, 2024) to the President of the National Assembly to carry out a second reading of the adopted law.

If the constitutional revision proposal were adopted, Togo would move from a presidential regime to a parliamentary regime. The president would no longer be elected directly, but by the National Assembly, for a mandate of seven years, instead of the current five, renewable once. The Assembly would also elect a President of the Council, at the head of the government, endowed with significant powers. 

 Faure Gnassingbe, who succeeded his father as head of state nineteen years ago, is facing an unprecedented outcry from the opposition and civil society, who accuse him of to want to remain at the head of the country indefinitely.

    The leader of the Afghan Taliban issues a statement in 7 languages ​​after an audio recording and flogging and stoning of women and men

    On Saturday, in a statement, the leader of the Afghan Taliban movement, Hibatullah Akhundzada, called on officials in the movement to put aside their differences and devote themselves to serving their country, as Eid al-Fitr approaches.

    It seems that public opposition within the Taliban is unlikely, but some leaders in the movement have shown dissatisfaction with decisions taken by the leadership, especially the ban on female education.

    Akhundzada, a reclusive leader who rarely leaves the Taliban stronghold in Kandahar province in the south of the country, and never appears in public, has played a major role in imposing restrictions on women and girls, sparking international outrage and isolating the Taliban on the global stage.

    Akhundzada's message was distributed in seven languages, including Uzbek and Turkmen, and is an attempt by the Taliban to court the rich Central Asian countries for investment, and to give legitimacy to the country's rule.
