Opposition Reject Parliamentary Election Results in Benin Republic

Benin Republic’s main opposition party, Les Democrates has rejected provisional results from Sunday’s parliamentary election.

Out of 109 seats, the Benin’s electoral body said the party won 28 seats.  This is the first time its members will be represented in the chamber, in four years.

Spokesman for Les Democrates accused the commission of misrepresenting results in order to minimise the opposition’s parliamentary representation.

81 seats in the vote went to allies of President Patrice Talon, however the final results are expected later this week.

Benin’s opposition was in effect barred from running in the 2019 legislative elections with most of Talon’s opponents imprisoned or exiled.
