Benin Republic To Choose New President

Voters in Benin Republic will elect a new president on Sunday, March 6 in what has been described as a crowded race focused on boosting the West African nation’s dwindling economy.

President Thomas Boni Yayi is stepping down after two terms in office leaving 33 candidates vying for the top job.

Benin has not seen the levels of political tension that have plagued other recent votes across the continent, including in Burundi and Rwanda where leaders have tested constitutional limits to stand for a third term.

However, observers say logistical problems may prevent thousands eligible voters from casting their ballots.
