After fulfilling their civic duty this Sunday on the occasion of the legislative election, several personalities gave their appreciation here.
Abdoulaye Bio Tchané, SGN/BR
“It is at this price that our democracy will continue to show its vitality”
“I am very satisfied with the conduct of the ballot in this precise place where I have just expressed my right to vote. This is my traditional polling station. I found there the same atmosphere of peace and good organization as in previous years. I would especially like to congratulate the CENA for the good organization. I have seen quite a few people expressing this right. It’s a good thing, I ask those who are still at home to come out to express their civil rights for their political party. It is at this price that our democracy will continue to show its vitality. My expectations have been the same since the beginning of the campaign and I hope that we will finish these elections victoriously, with interest and passion”.
Minister Jean Claude Houssou after his vote
“It is a source of pride for me to belong to this people of Benin…”
“I have just voted with happiness and pride, the happiness of accomplishing a civic duty which is permitted to all citizens of this country, but also of exercising a civic duty as a model and exemplary citizen. It is also a source of pride for me to belong to this people of Benin who today show to the eyes of the world that their democracy is alive, dynamic and above all that it is productive. Today is an election day like any other.
Véronique Tognifodé, Minister of Social Affairs and Microfinance
“It is very important to make this choice for the stakes for our country…”
” […] I have just fulfilled my civic duty, I have just voted at the Missité school complex. I would like to call on all my fellow citizens who are still at home to come out en masse to fulfill their duty to vote. It is very important to make this choice for the stakes for our country… I am delighted that the ballot is really taking place in serenity and peace”
Anique Florence Djimadja, UP R candidate
“I am delighted to see that the ballot is taking place in a calm environment”
” […] I have just fulfilled my civic duty in two ways, first as a citizen and then as a candidate. I am delighted to see that the ballot is taking place peacefully and that the people of Benin are coming out to perform the civic act. I would like to thank all the structures in charge of the elections for the quality of the work that is done, but also to invite and urge Beninese to come out en masse to vote. Because voting is first and foremost a civic duty, but it gives people who can validly represent the people of Benin the opportunity to voice their grievances, concerns and legitimate expectations.
