The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has announced the dispatch of 40 observers to oversee the legislative and regional elections in Togo scheduled for April 29, 2024. Led by former Gambian Vice-President Fatoumata Jallow-Tambajang, the observer team comprises ambassadors, representatives from ECOWAS institutions, civil society members, media professionals, and election specialists from the region.

This deployment aligns with ECOWAS’ commitment to assisting member states in conducting elections, as outlined in Article 12 of the ECOWAS Supplementary Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance. The decision follows a pre-election fact-finding mission conducted from April 15 to 20, 2024, aimed at assessing the electoral preparations in Togo.

Throughout their mission, the observers will engage with key stakeholders in the electoral process and closely monitor voting procedures. This initiative reflects ECOWAS’ ongoing efforts to promote democratic practices within the region.
