Yawa Tzegan was elected Wednesday as speaker of the National Assembly of the 6th Legislature of Togo.

A member of the ruling Union for the Republic (UNIR), she takes over from Dama Dramani, a former member of the Rally of the Togolese People (RPT) at the head of the institution, and becomes the first woman to reach this position.

Ms. Tzegan was a member of the delegation that represented the ruling majority at the cross-party dialogue last year facilitated by the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS.
