Leader and presidential candidate of the Togolese Movement for Restoration (MTR), Dr. Jean-Emmanuel Gnagnon has arrived in Ghana to seek support in resolving the political crisis in Togo.

Dr. Gnagnon and vice president of the party, Advocate Brice Afatsawo- Kpotor are on a mission to rally international support against the recent constitutional changes in Togo, which they believe undermine democracy and the people’s right to elect their leader.

Addressing a news conference in Accra, the opposition Leader expressed his disapproval of the new legislation, which grants parliament the power to elect the president, effectively denying citizens their right to vote.

“I believe that the people must have their right to choose their own President”, he stressed.

He emphasized that the MTR is committed to promoting peace, socialism, and progress in Africa and is determined to challenge this undemocratic move.

The recent constitutional amendments, adopted by Togolese lawmakers on March 25, have sparked controversy and opposition from various quarters.

The changes introduce a parliamentary system, where the president will be elected by lawmakers for a single six-year term, without public input. The president’s powers will be significantly reduced, with the president of the council of ministers assuming full authority and accountability for managing the government.

But the MRT Leader who is billed to meet the National Chief Imam, Christian Council of Ghana and the National Peace Council, whilst in Ghana believes that international pressure can help reverse the constitutional changes and ensure a democratic and inclusive political process in Togo.
