Togo’s presidential election has been postponed by 10 days to April 25, the communications minister announced on Friday, after calls for a delay over claims the voter register was flawed.

“The presidential election will be held on April 25, 2015 and not April 15, the initial date,” said a presidential decree read on state television in the small West African country by Communications Minister Germaine Koumealo Anate.

The country’s leader, Faure Gnassingbe is eyeing a third term in office, against stiff opposition.
