Togo will hold its next presidential election on Feb. 28, 2010, the country's Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) announced on Friday.

"We have to work unremittingly to make sure that the election is held on time, which is mandated by the constitution," Henri Kolani, newly elected CENI president, told a press conference held in the capital of the West African country.

However, the announcement was ignored by opposition parliamentarians who are dissatisfied with Kolani's election as the CENI chief, arguing that the Party for Democracy and Renewal (PDR), where Kolani is from, is part of the extra-parliamentarian opposition that have no seats in parliament.

According to Kolani, the final election campaign is set on Feb.13-26 2009, while the preparatory work will start as early as this October.

The CENI, composed of 17 members from the ruling party -- the Rally of the Togolese People (RPT), the opposition, the extra-parliamentarian opposition, the public administration and civil society, is the organizer and regulator of the country's elections.
