Yearbook 1996

Togo. A number of filling elections meant that Rassemblement du peuple togolais (RPT, the Togolese People's Collection) gained its own majority in the National Assembly. According to, with 43 out of a total of 81 seats, the RPT no longer needed to remain in coalition with the Union togolaise pour la démocratie (UTD, Togolese Federation for Democracy), which it has not been equated with for some time. This in turn meant that the UTD's Edem Kodjo resigned as prime minister. In his stead, President Gnassingbé Eyadéma appointed Kwasi Klutse as prime minister on August 20.
