Nine new members of Togo's constitutional court were sworn in office on Thursday, paving the way for parliamentary elections in October.

President Faure Gnassingbe on Monday appointed Aboudou Assouma to replace Atsu Koffi Amega as head of the constitutional court.

In his speech, Faure asked the constitutional judges to undertake their tasks independently and responsibly and to guarantee that free and transparent elections be held smoothly.

The long-awaited elections have been postponed on several occasions because of what has been described as logistical and organizational challenges.

The constitutional court is responsible for declaring the legality of parliamentary elections and solving election disputes. Togo's parliamentary elections are slated to be held on Oct. 14.
