Local elections will be held in Togo on Sunday, June 30. Voters from the country's 117 municipalities will go to the polls to select their local council representatives. Campaigning for the vote begins on Friday, June 14, and will continue until Friday, June 28; political rallies are expected nationwide over the coming weeks.
An increase in political events is likely in the coming weeks and low-level electoral violence is also possible. Heightened security measures, particularly around polling stations, and commercial disruptions are anticipated on June 30.
The last local elections in Togo were held in 1987.
Individuals in Togo are advised to monitor the situation, avoid polling stations and any public demonstrations, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
