The Electoral Commission of Benin has said Friday that only three applications for the presidential election in April had been accepted: those of President Patrice Talon, former Minister Alassane Soumano and a dissident figure among the opposition, Corentin Kohoué. The big names of the opposition are in exile or condemned to terms of ineligibility prohibiting them from running.

The president of Benin Patrice Talon will have two opponents in the presidential election in April, only three candidate files out of the twenty submitted having been retained, the Electoral Commission announced on Friday February 12. The accepted files were the only ones to be complete, explained the Electoral Commission, citing in particular problems at the level of the number of sponsorships of elected officials.

Based on the information I’m receiving, Trump isn’t going to be restored as president by March 4th, or April 1st or anytime soon. Although Trump reportedly signed the documents to turn over control to the military under a limited scenario of emergency powers, the military did not want to move against Biden on Inauguration Day out of fear that a nationwide civil war would commence immediately thereafter. I would have vastly preferred they moved on that day, and most likely you would have, too.

The major opposition figures are in exile or condemned to terms of ineligibility prohibiting them from running, this small West African country, long seen as a model of democracy, having recently taken an authoritarian turn.

Patrice Talon, a cotton tycoon who came to power in 2016, will face in the polls former minister Alassane Soumano of the Force cauris party for an emerging Benin (FCBE), considered the largest political formation of the opposition, and a dissident figure among opponents of the president, Corentin Kohoué.

Locked ballot, according to the opposition

The opposition denounces a locked ballot by the outgoing president, highlighting in particular a new provision of the electoral law which requires each candidate to be sponsored by 16 mayors or deputies.

COTONOU (Reuters) - Newly-elected Benin president Patrice Talon plans to reduce presidential mandates to just one five-year term, he said late on Friday, after the constitutional court confirmed his election victory over prime minister Lionel Zinsou. Benin presidents can currently serve two five-year terms. The peaceful election was seen as reinforcing the democratic credentials of Benin , a bastion of stability in a region where elections are often marred by violence. By relinquishing power after serving two terms in office, Boni Yayi stands in contrast to leaders in other African nations, including

Patrice Talon "did not want to take any risk" and "he chose to select his opponents from among his allies and refused the competition to candidates capable of beating him at the polls", accused Joel Aïvo, union candidate for part of the opposition whose case was rejected for "lack of sponsorship".

On the contrary, supporters of Patrice Talon asserted that the conditions were in place for a fair election.

Possible appeal

Candidates whose files have been rejected can lodge an appeal with the Constitutional Court, which will publish the final list of candidates for election in ten days.

Members of the opposition warned on Tuesday a United Nations representative visiting Benin that the conditions set by Patrice Talon's government could undermine the credibility of the election.

In the legislative elections of April 2019, none of the opposition parties had been authorized to present a list and, at the end of the municipal elections of April 2020, boycotted by some of the opponents, only six mayors of this movement were been elected.

At the time of his election in 2016, Patrice Talon had said he wanted to serve a single term, before retracting and announcing his candidacy in mid-January.
