Background:

Togoland, of which modern Togo was formerly a part, was colonized by the Germans in 1894. The German occupation has been ended by a joint Anglo-French force early in World War I.

In 1960 French Togoland became Togo. But only in 2007, after years of military rule and political unrest, Togo held its first relatively free and fair legislative elections.
