The new Togolese government led by Prime Minister Komi Selom Klassou won a vote of confidence in parliament by a large majority on Monday.

Sixty-five out of 74 parliamentarians voted to support the government, which was formed last Saturday.

Klassou told members of parliament that his government “will work to make economic and social inclusion the main aim of national cohesion. We will continue to modernize the country through economic reforms and intensification of major infrastructure works.” 

The president of the Togolese National Assembly, Dama Dramani said that “the national Assembly will be very vigilant of the way the prime minister will lead the government for the good of the Togolese people.”

Incumbent Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe won last April's elections with 58.8 percent of the vote. 

The opposition denounced the election as a “massive fraud.”
