Who is the President of Togo?
Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé is the President of Togo. After his father, the long time President of Togo since 1967, died on 2005 February 5, Faure Gnassingbé was chosen by the military to be the next president. At first Faure attempted to serve the remainder of his father's term, but the constitution required an election to take place within 60 days of his father's death. Faure stepped down on February 25, but he was 'reelected' and became president again on May 4 of that year. Accusations of fraud led into violence with thousands fleeing the country. With a slightly more legitimate election in 2010, Faure Gnassingbé was re-elected, with much less violence.
