Togo - Government and Political Conditions (Notes)


GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL CONDITIONS
Togo has a transitional unity government in preparation for legislative elections. President Gnassingbe faces a significant challenge, treading lightly with entrenched ruling party interests while trying to implement democratic reforms and revive Togo's deteriorating economy. Togo's long-suffering population has seen its living standards decline precipitously since the 1980s.

The Togolese judiciary is modeled on the French system. For administrative purposes, Togo is divided into 30 prefectures, each having an appointed prefect.
